GP and Child Health Practitioner Information

Darwin Paediatrics is a contemporary, progressive private paediatric practice, established in 2014 to provide high quality inpatient and outpatient paediatric care within Darwin Private Hospital. We have freshly renovated rooms on the ground floor of Darwin Private Hospital providing outpatient paediatric services. We also provide inpatient paediatric services to the maternity unit (Jabiru ward) and Special Care Nursery.

We have a number of Paediatricians from around the country in our team, who provide both outpatient and inpatient services. Our Paediatricians are highly qualified specialist physicians who have completed the majority of their training in large tertiary centres in Melbourne and Sydney and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience. Most of our group also work as Consultant Paediatricians at Royal Darwin Hospital providing excellent continuity of care and ongoing up skilling.
