The Geelong Children’s Clinic is delighted to welcome kids’ skin guru Tim Gartland, who will be starting regular clinics with us in October. Tim will be visiting Geelong every fortnight. Tim has over 20 years of experience in paediatric nursing at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.

As a fully-qualified Nurse Practitioner in paediatric dermatology, Tim can prescribe medications, request blood tests and arrange skin swabs as needed. Tim can also coordinate referral for children to see specialist medical doctors, e.g. if the child needs skin prick testing for allergy symptoms, UVB light therapy, or surgical biopsy of a skin lesion.

Families can refer their own child to see Tim at the Geelong Children’s Clinic - a separate referral from a medical doctor is not required. Contact our clinic reception desk on 5271 8667 to arrange an appointment or for further information.
