Child and Family Health Clinic

The Child and Family Health clinic is a free service to support families caring for children from birth to five years of age.

Child and Family Health Nurses provide regular developmental screening as well as information and support on breastfeeding, maternal and infant nutrition, introducing solids, growth and development, sleep and settling, parenting, immunisation, dental care, child safety and community services.

We also provide an Immunisation Clinic for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. Immunisation is free of charge to infants, children, and eligible adults following NSW Health Immunisation Schedules and the guidelines provided by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).

All Immunisations given to children are entered on the ACIR (Australian Childhood Immunisation Register).
