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:


Lismore Base Hospital’s modern Operating Theatre Suite comprises eight general operating theatres, three recovery areas, and two Endoscopy Theatres. The team of experienced surgeons provide a range of emergency and elective surgeries including general, obstetric, orthopaedic, urology, ENT, dental, gynaecology, and vascular surgery in a modern, state-of-the-art Hybrid Theatre.

Day of Surgery/Endoscopy

The Day of Surgery/Endoscopy unit caters to all elective surgical patients, excluding those needing to be admitted the day before surgery for medical reasons. The unit prepares patients for surgery, endoscopy and radiological interventional procedures.

This includes day surgery cases, Endoscopy, and interventional radiology procedures where the patient needs time to recover before they can go home.
