The Paediatric Urology Unit treats children with elective and emergency problems of the kidneys, bladder and genital tract.
How to access the service
For emergency assistance, your child should be brought to the Hospital's Emergency Department for assessment. A referral will be made to the Urology team if required. In rural or remote areas, it may be wise to be seen by your local doctor first. Your doctor may consult with the registrar for urology advice or arrange for your child to be brought to the WCH or organise an urgent outpatient appointment.
For all other situations, access to our service is through the Outpatient Department.
Please indicate if an interpreter is needed. An appointment will be sent out on receipt of the referral.
Information for Families
Investigations may need to be ordered before your appointment at the WCH. Each child is then clinically assessed and any further investigations arranged if required.
An individual plan will then be discussed with you and your child to best manage your child's particular problem.
Please bring any relevant scans or previous investigations to your child's appointment.
If you are unable to attend the appointment for any reason, please contact us to arrange another appointment time. Phone (08) 8161 7399
