Outpatients

We treat more than 78,000 outpatients each year and run a number of outpatient clinics to provide ongoing care and treatment for patients. Outpatient clinics operate to provide healthcare to patients who require an examination or treatment, but who are not required to stay in hospital overnight.

Outpatients can download the outpatients clinics map (PDF 207KB) to find out where appointments are located.

Making an appointment

Outpatient appointments are made after referral from your General Practitioner (GP) or for further treatment after being discharged from hospital. Outpatient appointment information is then posted to patients.

Additional information is available for health professionals seeking more information about outpatient referrals at Bentley Hospital.

What to bring

When an outpatient appointment has been arranged, it is recommended that patients bring:

  • Medicare card or health care card
  • a list of current medications (including creams, eye drops and over the counter medications)
  • any relevant x-rays.

Patients are also advised that wait times for outpatient appointments can vary.

Questions to ask at your medical appointment

To help you make the right decisions about your health care, there are a number of useful questions (PDF 528KB) to ask at your medical appointment. These questions guide you on what to ask your doctor to ensure you get the care that is right for you.
