Latrobe Regional Hospital

Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service


Children and adolescents up to the age of 18 who need specialist rehabilitation after an injury, surgery or to manage a medical condition are able to access support through the Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (VPRS) run by Latrobe Regional Hospital.

The service also assists children who have returned home after specialist care from the Royal Children's Hospital and Monash Children's Hospital.

Our team includes a rehabilitation paediatrician, neuropsychologist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, social worker and speech pathologist.

Your child is able to access the service if their rehabilitation needs are of a moderate to high complexity. They'll undergo several assessments before a plan is developed focusing on their goals. The plan is reviewed regularly.


Referral process

Children and adolescents can be referred to the VPRS by GPs, paediatricians, allied health professionals, other hospitals and community agencies.

You are also able to refer a child directly by contacting Latrobe Regional Hospital's Allied Health Department on 5173 8383. You will be directed to the VPRS team.


Contact details

If you would like to make a referral or need more information about the VPRS phone Latrobe Regional Hospital's Allied Health Department on 5173 8383.

The Allied Health Department is open Monday to Friday from 8am-5pm and closed on public holidays.
