The facilities provide integrated health, education and disability service dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of country children. It features an Oral Health Unit for dentistry and orthodontics and 25 clinic rooms, including a dedicated Paediatric Occupational Therapy Room. The facility doubles the number of Telecare Pods.
