Virtual urgent medical care for children

29 September 2021

The Women’s and Children’s Hospital’s new virtual assessment and referral service allows children with non-life-threatening conditions to receive advice and coordinated care over a video platform.

Run by a highly skilled team of emergency consultants, nurses and administration staff, the Child and Adolescent Virtual Urgent Care Service allows children who are well enough to avoid hospital to receive expert advice virtually, no matter where they are.

The service is available for children one to 18 years of age, seven days a week from 1 pm to 8.30 pm.

Information is available at www.wch.sa.gov.au/virtualurgentcare. It includes materials you can print and distribute and frequently asked questions.
