There is nothing worse than having to wait while your child is in pain. Our experienced staff treat children of all ages for most childhood accidents and illnesses at any time of the day and night. In fact 20% of our patients are children.
If your child requires hospitalisation, we can refer your child to a paediatrician for ongoing management. This paediatrician will decide on the most appropriate hospital for your child’s care. Holy Spirit Northside Hospital does not have a paediatric ward. Only a small number of children require hospitalisation.
Very sick infants/children requiring urgent serious care should bypass BNE and continue on to the Royal Children’s Hospital at Herston as it is the only suitable facility for this small group of children.
We are happy to apply casts and treat fractures referred to us for our management. We do not apply casts to patients who are referred to us just for cast application.
