Paediatric Rapid Assessment Clinic (PRAC)

The Paediatric Rapid Assessment Clinic provides timely access to care for infants and children from newborn to age 17 years. 

The clinic believes in a family centred approach to care.  Assessment, investigation and treatment are all done in a child-friendly environment that specializes in caring for infants and children.


If your doctor, nurse or midwife feels your infant or child should be assessed by a paediatrician, a referral can be made to the clinic.

Once a referral is faxed to the clinic you will be called within 24 hours and be given an appointment date and time.  The appointment will be within 1-3 days.
