Winner

COVIDKids

Created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this virtual service provides specialist support for South Australian children and young people diagnosed with COVID-19 and is managed by specialist staff at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

The team virtually assess children with COVID-19 and offer support and medical advice to families in their own home. Set up in just 2 months, the service ensured children were able to stay at home as much as possible, but offers a safe space for face-to-face care if needed.
