The Paediatric Healthcare team provides overall strategic direction and support for hospital care (including outreach) of infants, children and young people (to 16th birthday) in NSW, especially through the development of paediatric guidelines, policies and clinical networks. The NSW Health system covers a large geographical area and includes multiple and diverse health facilities across metropolitan, regional, rural and remote regions. Within this system the majority of paediatric acute care is delivered by facilities that are located away from the State’s specialist children’s hospitals.
The NSW Chief Paediatrician provides state-wide clinical leadership in the development, implementation and evaluation of strategy, policy and programs across paediatric healthcare in the NSW public health system. The role includes providing expert advice and guidance to the Paediatric Healthcare team.
