Children’s Health

Children’s Health

When you’re a parent, one of the most important things in life is the health and well-being of your child. At Bellbowrie Family Practice, we understand this. We know that kids health is really important, and we know what matters to parents when it comes to the health of their children.

We offer a comprehensive range of children’s health services which are in place to provide a full-service medical practice for your family. We are committed to providing the best healthcare for your child, and whether you are an existing patient or a new patient, we are only too happy to book an appointment with you and your child.

Call us on 07 3202 5360 or contact us online to make your appointment. One of our team will get back to you to confirm a time. We are open six days a week, Monday to Saturday (late on Monday and Thursday) and are also available for home visits in special circumstances.

Children’s Health Services

At Bellbowrie Family Practice, we offer a comprehensive range of children’s health services including:

Asthma Management – Childhood asthma is a common problem, but we take it seriously. Our doctors can tailor an asthma management plan to suit your child’s individual needs.

Childhood Immunisation – We offer immunisations from birth up to the teen years. Our team can offer advice and discuss any concerns you have.

Ear, Nose and Throat Problems – Tonsillitis and middle ear infections are common children’s health problems. We can provide diagnosis and treatment, or a referral for specialist care if necessary.

Respiratory Illnesses – Bronchiolitis, respiratory allergies, and conditions that cause wheezing can have an impact on your child’s quality of life. Our team is experienced in the diagnosis and management of respiratory illnesses that affect children.

Developmental Difficulties – Not every child develops at the same rate, and some need a little help. Our team can give advice on learning difficulties, bedwetting, speech delays, and behavioural issues. We can also arrange referrals for specialist care in these areas.

Allergies and Anaphylaxis – Allergies are common in childhood, and we understand the impact they can have on the whole family. Our doctors are experienced in treating a range of allergic conditions.

Anaphylaxis is an allergic condition that can be life-threatening, so we take it seriously. Our doctors can help with a management plan and advise you what to do in the case of an emergency.

Eczema – While most types of eczema are not allergies themselves, the disease can flare up in response to things that cause an allergic reaction. When the immune system overreacts to something in the environment, outbreaks of eczema can occur. We do our best to treat and prevent eczema, helping your child to live without the symptoms of eczema.

Adolescent Mental Health – Being an adolescent isn’t always easy and we understand that sometimes your teen needs extra help. We can treat adolescent mental health issues or arrange a referral for counselling or specialist care.

Conditions Requiring Surgery – Sometimes surgery is required to correct birth conditions or subsequent problems. Our doctors have experience in diagnosing conditions that require surgery. We can provide referrals to surgeons you can trust.

Baby and Infant Health

Sometimes you just need someone to talk to when you are concerned about your baby. Our team can provide comprehensive advice and professional care for your baby, offering you much-needed peace of mind when something doesn’t seem right.

Many new mothers come to us with help for feeding, maintaining healthy weight and advice on how to care for their baby to ensure the best possible health in infancy and throughout childhood. Our baby health services include:

  • Feeding advice
  • Weight and growth checks
  • Immunisation
  • Breastfeeding advice
  • Settling and sleep strategies
  • Advice on caring for a fussy baby
  • Growth and development assessments
  • Treatment for common illnesses
  • Education and support for families
