I am in Perth and have 2 options for vbac. One is a new hospital close by that will have amazing facilities. They do vbacs there too. Or I can go the the larger older hospital that is further away but they have an actual vbac clinic there.
I guess I am unsure what the difference is between attending a vbac clinic and just trying for a vbac at a regular public hospital ( both are public).

Can you ring and speak to the midwives and do a tour of both places? It may help you get a feel for both places and the level of care and support you will receive.
Personally I'd be inclined to go with a hospital with a designated vbac clinic because I'd think the staff would have more experience.

I agree that you need to go talk to them at both hospitals as policies can vary a lot. For example my hospital preferred no epidural for VBAC whereas at another hospital where a friend is a midwife an epidural is routine for VBAC "just in case".

If you're talking about Fiona Stanley v KEMH, I think you'll find there are staff from KEMH transferring to Fiona Stanley, so there might not be too much of a difference?
I ran in to one of the consultant neonatologists at KEMH a couple of weeks ago who is transferring to Fiona Stanley, so level of care (for the nursery at least!) should be comparable.
