Central Paediatrics was established in 2000 and was one of the first multidisciplinary group paediatric practices in Sydney. All the consultant physicians have appointments at, or are associated with, the major Sydney paediatric hospitals/units. All are parents themselves and understand the importance of providing quality and evidence-based care in a child friendly and welcoming environment. We provide a consultative paediatric service from birth with, in general, no new patients after their 16th birthday.
