About our service

The Sydney Children's Hospitals Network (SCHN) cardiac services bring together medical, nursing, and allied health teams to provide specialist family support, and work in partnership with other teams within the network (such as anaesthetics, intensive care and neonatology, and medical imaging).

We offer patient services at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick, and within statewide outreach centres. We have an exceptional research program, Kids Heart Research, to enhance the care we provide to cardiac patients and their families. 

Referral process for clinicians

Our services use Consultmed to manage referrals. The Consultmed platform allows health professionals to send e-referrals to us securely.  

Important: We have two Consultmed accounts, one for The Children's Hospital at Westmead and one for Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. Please select the relevant service when using Consultmed,
