Specialist Clinics and Outpatients

For most patients, your first appointment will be at an outpatient department/clinic or a doctor's private rooms. At the clinics, you may meet a range of health care professionals, including medical specialists and nurses.

Costs may vary depending on where you see a doctor (for example, in their rooms, Outpatients, as a public or private patient). If you hold a Medicare card, generally visits to an Outpatient clinic incur no costs. However if you visit a doctor in their private rooms, charges may apply. Ask when you make the booking or appointment if any costs will apply.

Outpatient facilities are mainly located at Ground East of Concord Hospital. If you need any assistance, please ask at the front enquiry desk in the main building of the Hospital.
