Children are usually managed by paediatricians with referral to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Depending on the clinical need, adolescents can be managed at the RAH or The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (with various approvals required).

The Infectious Diseases Clinic provides administration of intravenous antibiotics and device management to keep people out of hospital.

The clinic offers support to, and reviews community patients who are under the care of Infectious Diseases Medical staff and are receiving antibiotics in their home.
