The Australian Government has released a new app, COVIDSafe.
The COVIDSafe app speeds up contacting people exposed to coronavirus (COVID-19), helping to slow the spread of COVID-19.
COVID-19 testing clinic at WCH
A COVID-19 testing clinic is now open at The Women's and Children's Hospital from 9:00am – 8:00pm 7 days a week.
If you have travelled anywhere overseas in the past 14 days and have COVID-19 symptoms (especially fever or cough) either seek testing at the clinic or contact your GP and isolate yourself.
Mental health services for children and young people
In times of crisis, families can experience an increased level of stress and vulnerability.
The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) plays an important role in the community supporting children, young people and their families.
Women's and Children's Hospital Upgrade Project
A $50 million upgrade of the Women's and Children's Hospital is underway.
There may be an increase in noise, activity and other disruptions resulting from these building works. If you have any concerns please contact a staff member as your comfort and safety is our top priority.
Ensuring the safety of women, children and families
Family violence can become more frequent and severe during periods of emergency or high-stress. Being separated from support systems can increase the risk of family violence.
We provide a number of free and confidential services to care for those experiencing family violence. We are here if you need us.
