Outpatients, also known as Specialist Clinics, is where a consultation or procedure is provided by a public hospital to a person who is not currently admitted to the hospital.
At Austin Health, we provide a service to patients needing specialist medical, surgical or paediatric assessment and care. We also provide associated allied health (e.g. physiotherapy) and diagnostic testing (e.g. x-ray).
Patients are referred to Specialist Clinics from a General Practitioner (GP) or another specialist. Sometimes patients are referred for follow up after treatment in the emergency department or after an inpatient episode.
Austin Health's Specialist Clinics are located at the Austin Hospital and the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital.
