At Priority Paediatrics, your child's health is our priority.

Who We Are

Priority Paediatrics is a group of private Paediatric Emergency Specialists and General Paediatricians working together to deliver the highest level of care, rapidly, to the children of Adelaide and South Australia.

We understand that there are occasions when an urgent appointment with a paediatric doctor is required, but it may not be necessary to attend the Emergency Department. Priority Paediatrics offers fast and accessible appointments with a paediatrician for non-critical issues, via our Rapid Access Team by specialists who also work at the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide. 

For urgent matters, in-clinic appointments ​with our Rapid Access Team are available within 7 days, and Telehealth within 1-2 days, often less.

In case GPs are concerned and require a patient to be seen the same day, we do keep slots free to accommodate such patients at Priority Paediatrics in North Adelaide.


Rapid Access appointments are available to patients who have either been referred by their General Practitioner or local Emergency Department. Patients may also elect to self-refer in order to access an appointment quickly. In this case, however, Medicare will not provide a rebate for the cost of the appointment.

In addition to Rapid Access appointments, Priority Paediatrics offers general paediatric appointments, behavioural assessments, developmental paediatrics, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) assessments, ADHD assessments, and can help with almost all paediatric presentations.
