In this section
The Rheumatology team is available for outpatient appointments, and for inpatients admitted to the Royal Children's Hospital.
Our public outpatient appointments are at Desk A2 on the Ground Floor, at RCH, 50 Flemington Road, Parkville.
If your referral has been triaged as non-urgent or semi-urgent and you would rather not wait, you can consider paying for an appointment with a doctor privately (see below). You can also contact Paediatric Rheumatology at Monash Children's, as they also have an excellent service, and usually have much shorter waiting times than RCH. Please let us know if you decide to be seen elsewhere and no longer need to be on the RCH waiting list.
If you would like to make a private appointment, you should contact the doctor or their private rooms directly. We cannot help you with private appointments unfortunately, and we do not know their fees or waiting times. Options that you could consider include:
