Outpatient clinics and services provide health care to patients who do not require admission to hospital. 

These services allow for examination or treatment as well as the provision of care for patients with complex or chronic conditions who benefit from a multidisciplinary approach.

Services are provided by a range of healthcare professionals including medical, nursing and midwifery, and allied health staff. You may see these healthcare professionals together or separately depending on your needs. We may also need to refer you to other hospital services, including the:

Managing outpatient appointments during COVID-19

South Metropolitan Health Service (SMHS) continues to review how to manage its readiness and response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation.

Reducing face-to-face patient interaction in our hospitals is one way to maximise patient and staff safety.

Where practical, some outpatient appointments are now being delivered by telephone rather than onsite within the hospital. Suitable patients will be informed via a telephone call that their appointment will now be delivered by telephone.

In preparation for this, SMHS outpatient waitlist data is being audited to provide an accurate picture of the number of referred patients awaiting their first outpatient appointment. Read more about this audit (external site).
