Outpatients

Placeholder image

Our outpatient clinics provide ongoing health care and treatment for patients who require an examination or treatment, but who are not required to stay in hospital overnight.

Rockingham General Hospital (RGH) outpatient clinics include a range of medical and surgical specialties.

Patients may be referred to the Outpatient Department as a new patient or for follow-up post surgery/discharge.

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 RGH.

Appointment reminders

Reminders are sent in the form of a text message to patients who have provided a mobile telephone number for all clinics with the exception of:

  • Pre-admission
  • Anaesthetic/Pain Management
  • Geriatric Clinics including Stroke, Parkinsons, Falls and Memory
