Outpatient appointments during COVID-19

Read how South Metropolitan Health Service is managing outpatient appointments during COVID-19.

Our outpatient services

We assist all medical and surgical specialties in their care of patients who do not need hospital admission and perform minor surgery in ophthalmology.

New patients can be referred to us, as can existing patients who require follow-up care after discharge or surgery.

We liaise closely with the Pre-admission Clinic to ensure optimal care for patients being admitted for surgery.
