A multidisciplinary health service for school aged children, adolescents and adults diagnosed with intellectual disability and complex health needs.

People with intellectual disability often have more health problems than others in the general community. Many health needs can be met by a person's General Practitioner, but sometimes a specialised approach is needed.

Northern Sydney Intellectual Disability Health Team is a multidisciplinary health service for school aged children, adolescents and adults diagnosed with intellectual disability and complex health needs.

This service provides medical and health consultations, advice and referrals. The service works in conjunction with the person's General Practitioner and/ or Paediatrician, other health services and disability service providers to ensure coordinated, high quality health care.

People with a diagnosis of intellectual disability and complex health needs, who live in the Northern Sydney Local Health District are eligible to be seen at the Clinic.
