Children


Healthy Kids Check

Everyone wants to know that their child is developing normally.

This is why the Australian Government introduced the Healthy Kids Check. It includes health indicators such as height, weight, eyesight and hearing assessments.

You can book this at the same time as the four-year old immunisation.

Immunisation

Many diseases are preventable by immunisations. The government understands the importance of immunisation and requires these to be up to date to be able to claim the Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement and the Child Care Benefit.

At the Grange Medical Centre we do all childhood vaccinations. Please bring in your child’s Immunisation Card or Baby Book. If you have fallen behind or missed vaccinations and need to discuss a Catch-Up program come and talk to our nurses.

About immunsations

Fevers and Rashes

Little children are always catching things. Sometimes it is a minor illness, sometimes it can be serious. No one will ever tell you off or embarrass you for coming and asking about your child.

If your child is really unwell; listless, not drinking, shaking or fitting, call an ambulance or go straight to the hospital.

Children in the Surgery

There are many different people waiting to see the doctor. If you have an appointment with your child see if you can have siblings looked after at home or bring a family member to help look after energetic children. Some toys are available on request. We ask small children to be supervised at the water dispenser. If your child is likely to vomit, mention this to the receptionists and if you think your child has a contagious condition we may need to isolate him in another room.
