What we do

Paediatric EEG Outpatient Clinic

Paediatric EEG Outpatient Clinic provides electro-encephalograph (EEG) testing for children in Wollongong Hospital.

An EEG test can help diagnose conditions such as epilepsy, seizures, sleep disorders, and brain tumours. It does this by measuring the electrical activity in the brain.

 

Paediatric Medical Staff Specialist Outpatients Clinic

Paediatric Medical Staff Specialists Outpatients Clinic helps children who need their health managed by a paediatrician. 

A paediatrician is a medical doctor who can diagnose, treat and provide medical care for babies, children and teenagers.

The clinic staff work out of three locations:

  • Shellharbour Hospital
  • Shoalhaven Hospital
  • Wollongong Hospital
