NEED HELP WITH CHILDREN'S HEALTH?

Children’s health encompasses the physical, mental, emotional, and social well-being of children from infancy through adolescence. All children should have regular well-child check-ups according to the schedule recommended by their physician or pediatrician.

 

GP Role in early stages of Children health care

Your local GP or Family Doctor plays a vital role in your growing family’s health care. They are usually the first health professional to consult if you have any concerns about your child’s health and well-being. Our Doctors & Nurses provide continuity of care for children and their families within our community. Their services include:

  • Monitoring your children’s health and development
  • Immunisations
  • Treatment of accidents, minor injuries or illness
  • Refer closely to specialists to help manage your child’s ongoing care.
  • Behavioural issues
  • Allergies

 

The Australian Government – Department of Health & Aged Care, recommends follow-up visits at ages:

  • 7 days
  • 6-8 weeks
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • 18 months
  • 4 years old

Immunisations

Immunisations can protect children against many severe infectious diseases. Vaccines are one of the most effective and safest preventive care measures accessible.

Routine Child Immunisation schedule as recommended by Queensland Health:

  • At birth
  • 6 weeks (can be given at 2months)
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • 18 months

 

A recommended Non-Government funded vaccination frequently administered is ‘Bexsero’. It is known to protect your child against the nasty meningococcal disease. Caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis, the bacterium is commonly known as Meningococcus.

Meningococcal vaccines are suggested for:

  • infants, children, adolescents, and young adults
  • special risk groups, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, individuals with certain medical conditions.
  • laboratory workers who frequently handle Neisseria meningitides
  •  travelers
  • Young adults who live in close quarters or who are current smokers.

The Flu vaccine can be given from 6 months of age with 2 doses 1 month apart for first time under 9 then yearly. You will just require a brief check-up with the Doctor then head down to the Nurses for the vaccination.
