Waiting Times

Waiting times and days of consultation vary between paediatricians and allied health services.  Likely wait times will vary, but are updated regularly to reflect current estimates.

All referrals are triaged based on the information within the referral – if there is limited information, there is less chance the referral will be prioritised as urgent, and longer wait times are more likely.
