Ambulatory Care

Who we are

PCH’s Ambulatory Care Services focus on avoiding or reducing hospital admissions and emergency presentations, and decreasing the length of time children need to stay in hospital. 

We do this through coordinated care and by offering same-day services across a range of clinical areas as an alternative to in-hospital care.

Services we provide

We provide same-day treatments, home visits, clinics and telephone advice encompassing preventative, primary and specialist health care.
