    The easiest way to make a appointment with the pead or pod/physio is through your gp.

    Other than that you can call the child and youth health (sometimes they are child and youth mental health) office close to you and ask if they have a self referral form. I did that way when ds2 needed to see a speech

    For our health service (in Sa) you don't need a go referral for a pod or physio so you can make an appt directly. Other health services you do. Other health services you need to have a centerlink health care card (I.e low income) and if you don't you need to go private. Ring and ask as it varies between health services quite significantly.

    It may be hip dysplasia or clicky hips. The symptoms can be a limp, uneven leg length and uneven buttocks. Sometimes its not picked up at birth.

    The other main factors can be first born girl, high birth weight (9pd or over).

    Both my DD's had this and it is fully treatable, they are both 100% fine now. Ours was picked up fairly early by ultrasound, however once they are older its usually an xray.

    I am fairly confident it isn't hip dysplasia, her foot is actually smaller on that side too

    I don't have a health care card but I will go and talk to someone.
