 What we do

We routinely measure height and weight in all children as part of a child’s health assessment.


We provide a weight management program for children between two and 12 years old

 What to bring

Please bring your GP referral and Medicare card. At the first appointment bring any test results and previous measurements you may have for your child including Blue Book (Personal Health Record) as well as forms that we send you for completion prior to attending.

Ideally both parents/all adult carers should attend the clinic. We welcome all involved carers and family members including grandparents and siblings.

 When to visit us

Your child must be referred by your GP or paediatrician. Any child with Body Mass Index above the 85th percentile and aged between two-12 years is eligible to attend.

If possible complete the community based the Go4Fun program prior to starting in the Healthy Kids program.

Families in the Northern Sydney Local Health District will be given priority over those who live outside this area.

The closest railway stations are Hornsby and Waitara. Hornsby is accessible via both the main Northern Line and the North Shore Line. Waitara is on the North Shore Line. Transdev bus service #575 travels to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital from these stations.

Disabled parking spaces are available in the multi-storey car park and also on Lowe and Palmerston Roads, though street parking availability is very limited.
