Our integrated services ensure that Aboriginal children and families have a say in all decisions

Our priority for health care services for Aboriginal children and families is to provide access to high-quality services that are evidence-based, culturally safe and responsive and support optimum outcomes for child health, development and wellbeing.

We're focusing on integrated services to ensure children and families are at the centre and included in all aspects of decision-making.

Acknowledgement of Country

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network respectfully acknowledges Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the land in which our health facilities are located and the areas from which our patients reside. We pay our respects to the Elders, community members and the Aboriginal services and organisations who partner with us to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our Network.

Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network facilities are situated on the traditional lands of the Gadigal and Bidjigal people of the Eora nation in the east, and the Burramattagal people of the Dharug nation in the west.
