Child Health

​​​​​​​​​​​If your child is ill, the Child Health Service is here to make the journey through the health system as easy as possible both on the child and their parent/ guardian and provide the most comfortable, caring environment possible.

We have services based on two campuses: Christchurch Hospital Campus and Burwood Hospital Campus.

Our philosophy of care is centred around the rights of the child.

Our service aspires to promote and protect the rights of children and young people. If you want more details about the rights of children and young people in healthcare please read the  

Charter on the rights of children New Zealand.
