REMINDER : Limited Emergency Paediatric Surgical Services at Peninsula Health

GPs are reminded that emergency Paediatric General and Urological surgery is not usually performed at Frankston Hospital.

If you are managing a child less than 16 years of age who is unwell and who is likely to deteriorate clinically or require surgery ( for example probable appendicitis or testicular torsion) please strongly consider referring them to Monash Health directly. If the patient comes to Peninsula Health first, delay to definitive treatment will occur.

Emergency paediatric Plastic Surgery and Orthopaedic services are available for patients with acute injuries who are referred to Fracture Clinic or Plastic Surgery Clinic or who present to the Frankston Hospital Emergency Department. The Orthopaedic unit looks after paediatric trauma patients and shares care with the paediatricians for paediatric patients with bone or joint infections.
