Where possible, Outpatients appointments will be held by phone or telehealth, rather than in person until further notice.
If you have questions or concerns or can't attend your appointment then please let us know by contacting the relevant clinic.
The changes above will occur in some clinics before others but if you think you're at risk of having COVID-19 call our hotline on 03 9496 6606 or complete our online screening tool.

Outpatients appointments is where a consultation or procedure is provided to a person who is not currently admitted to the hospital.
We provide outpatient services to people needing specialist medical, surgical or paediatric assessment and care. We also provide associated allied health (such as physiotherapy) and diagnostic testing (such as blood tests and x-rays).
Patients are referred from a General Practitioner (GP) or another specialist. Sometimes patients are referred for follow up after treatment in our emergency department or after an inpatient episode.
Specialist Clinics are located at Austin Hospital and Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital.
