Kimberley Medical Group Puts Kids First

Kimberley Medical Group is passionate about giving children in the region the best possible chance at health and wellbeing.

Unfortunately, statistics have shown that children living in the Kimberley are at a higher disadvantage when it comes to their health and wellness. 

According to a 2018 report by the WA Department of Health, children aged 0-14 have a much higher rate of potentially preventable hospitalisations (PPH) from various conditions like pneumonia, urinary tract infections, asthma and diabetes. The rate of notifiable diseases such as vaccine preventable diseases, vector-borne diseases, food and water borne diseases and other infections was 4.5 times higher for Kimberley children than children in the rest of the state.

Simple check-ups can have a significant impact in preventing the onset of an illness or more complex condition. 

One of the many ways we try to look after children’s health is through our Sick Kids Clinic which we launched in 2016. We understand it can be very difficult, even impossible at times, to get your child checked due to the costs. Sometimes kids can even feel unwell out of the blue, or overnight, so it’s better to be safe than sorry. To stay on top of their health, we proudly offer walk-in, bulk-billed appointments every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 7:30 and 8:30 am for children and teens under 16.

Another way Kimberley Medical Group gets involved is by supporting the local Broome-based Feed The Little Children (FTLC) charity at Christmas. For the past two years, we’ve collected donations of old or new toys, non-perishable food items and donations of cash under our Christmas tree to help provide adequate nutrition for under-privileged kids during the festive season. Members of our community have shown such generosity in the past which will never go unnoticed. Every little bit counts for the local children in need.
