Children’s Services

The Central West Gippsland Paediatric Group have worked collaboratively to develop a paediatric allied health service that enables the community to access affordable and appropriate paediatric allied health services within their local community.

This has resulted in the development of a Children’s Allied Health service at Latrobe Community Health Service and West Gippsland Healthcare Group.
