Outpatient / Specialist Clinics

At Mersey Community Hospital Outpatient/Specialist Clinics we offer expert specialist assessment and diagnosis, information on treatment and management of health related matters. Our team of experienced highly skilled professionals deliver these services in comfortable consulting suites.

Over 20 surgeons, physicians and allied healthcare professionals conduct regular clinics within the department, as well as a number of inter and intrastate based Consultants. Patients may be referred from general practitioners, other consultants, 'In House' referrals and ward discharges.

All new patients require a written referral from a medical practitioner - all referrals are prioritized in terms of urgency by the Consultants and senior nursing personnel before appointments can be given to the patients.

Patients are requested by staff at the referring facility to contact our “toll free” phone number five working days following their consultation for non-urgent appointments.

If it is considered that the patient should be seen sooner rather than later they will be contacted by phone with an appropriate date and time.

The Specialist/Outpatient Clinics are located on the ground floor of the hospital, near the main entrance.

Opening Hours: 8.00am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday (except Public Holidays)

The consultants are well supported by senior registrars.

The facility also participates in providing exposure for 4th, 5th and 6th year medical students to medical/surgical/paediatric/orthopaedic disciplines in outpatients.

Consultants who go on leave are well supported by a core of ‘locum’ doctors.
