Hutt Valley DHB operates a general Paediatric Medicine, Child Development Service and Infant, Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health Service.
Our General Paediatrics service is staffed by a team of specialist paediatricians, registrars and paediatric nurses who provide an acute (24/7) service, alongside a range of outpatient clinics and community nursing services. We have good links with Wellington Hospital and the service hosts tertiary specialists from Wellington and Auckland Starship hospital.
The 3D Health Pathways site lists the ways GPs can obtain acute advice from a Pediatrician or Paediatric Registrar and provides acute and outpatient referral options.
3D Health Pathways
The Health Pathways site contains almost 30 localised child health pathways. Please check the site and follow any instructions or advice before referring children.
Paediatric advice and plans
In some situations, we can develop a treatment plan for you to deliver. This is called a virtual clinic appointment. We will send you a link to the treatment plan in our referral response.
