The current wait for an appointment can vary from 3-9 months depending on the specialty clinic that you are required to attend.

As this is a public clinic you will not be able to choose which consultant you are able to see. Clinic appointments are covered by residents, registrars, fellows and consultants. The consultant will oversee your appointment but you may not be directly seen by them.

We sometimes have requests by patients to be seen by a female doctor. We will endeavour to facilitate this but are unable to guarantee that a female doctor will be available. This may mean additional wait times for your appointment or require your appointment to be rescheduled.

This is a public hospital clinic, if you have a valid GP or specialist referral and Medicare card you will not be billed.

If you do not have a valid Medicare card, you will have to pay a fee. (Please contact hospital cashier reception for a schedule of charges).

If you are from a country which has a Reciprocal Healthcare Agreement, you will not need to pay for your appointment. If this applies, we may ask to see a copy of your visa and passport.

If you are having a procedure for insertion of an Intra Uterine Device (IUD),  the IUD is not included in your visit. You will need to get a prescription from your GP and then purchase your IUD device from your local pharmacist before your appointment. Please ensure you bring the IUD to your procedure.

Clinic appointments can vary between 15 mins- 2 hours dependent on the specialty clinic you are attending.

As this is a public clinic, there may be unavoidable delays and additional waiting times.

  • Medicare card
  • GP or specialist referral letter
  • Any scans or blood tests results

All patients booked into a urodynamics procedure are required to have a urine test 2 weeks prior to their scheduled appointment.
