In an emergency, always call triple zero (000). It’s a free call from any phone, mobile or phone box.

For other urgent medical issues, go to an Emergency Department.

Our Emergency Departments are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week:

The General Ward comprises 30 beds, including a Close Observation Unit for patients requiring a higher level of care. Medical Services are provided by ward-based doctors, and Visiting Medical Officers (VMOs), including local General Practitioners who have admitting rights.

Patients with private health insurance are able to select any available doctor with admitting rights to look after them. A General Physician and Gerontologist also provide services to the General Ward, along with a range of Allied Health Services including Physiotherapy and Social Work.

Hours of Service: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
