General health services for children

Doctors

When your child is unwell the GP (general practitioner) is often the first place you turn. Our wonderful GP clinic doctors can:

  • provide an overall health check-up
  • diagnose and treat short-term illnesses like the flu or a fever
  • provide referrals to other children’s health professionals like paediatricians or ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialists.

For more information or to make an appointment visit Doctors.

Immunisations and vaccinations

Infants, children and adolescents receive some vaccines for free under the National Immunisation Program (NIP). For more information about the immunisation schedule, visit the Victorian Government’s website.

Immunisations and vaccinations are available at your local Latrobe Community Health Service GP Clinic. For more information on clinic locations or to book an appointment visit Doctors.
