Your guide to the RCH


  • The majority of Specialist Clinics are conveniently located in one central, easy-to-access area off Main Street on Ground floor (Beach).

    Specialist Clinics provide a comprehensive range of general and specialist outpatient services. Your appointment letter will tell you where you need to go for your appointment.

    Specialist Clinics has been designed with patients and families in mind, with our overall aim to reduce wait times and deliver an improved patient experience.

    The RCH has flexible and interesting waiting areas for patients and families including the aquarium, a meerkat enclosure, various retail and food outlets, gardens and play areas.

    For some clinics, a patient pager system is available which allows patients and families to enjoy these spaces, and be called back to the waiting area when their doctor is ready to see them.  The Q-Flow system allows automated check in by scanning the barcode on your appointment letter or your Medicare card.  The system will give you an indicative wait time and a text message will be sent to your mobile when your turn is close.
