Children’s Hospital

The nearest specialised Children’s Hospital is the Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Where is the hospital? The Hospital is located at Westmead, about 28km from the CBD. It stands next to the Westmead Hospital but is not part of it. It is a stand-alone service dedicated to paediatrics.

Is it easy to get to the hospital? Yes. Trains from all over Sydney stop at Parramatta, and many go directly to the Westmead station. Buss services operate all over Sydney to Parramatta, with a special shuttle service from Sydney Airport to the hospital. A local minibus runs from Westmead to Parramatta City Centre, Parramatta Rivercat Ferry and Parramatta Train Station every 12 minutes on weekdays.

Child Protection

Keep Them Safe
A shared approach to child wellbeing is the NSW Government’s five-year action plan to re-shape the way family and community services are delivered in NSW to improve the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people.

The goal of Keep Them Safe is that “all children in NSW are healthy, happy and safe, and grow up belonging in families and communities where they have opportunities to reach their full potential”.

Keep Them Safe includes actions to enhance the universal service system, improve prevention and early intervention services, better protect children at risk, support Aboriginal children and families and strengthen partnerships with non-government organisations in the delivery of community services.
