Outpatients

About us

We assist all medical and surgical specialties in their care of patients who do not need hospital admission and perform minor surgery in ophthalmology. 

New patients can be referred to us, as can existing patients who require follow-up care after discharge or surgery.

We liaise closely with the Pre-admission Clinic to ensure optimal care for patients being admitted for surgery.

Patient information

We encourage you to be actively involved in all aspects of your healthcare and invite you to read the Patient First booklet found throughout Fremantle Hospital.

Please note that appointment times are guides only. Waiting times between clinics will vary and several clinics run together.

To cancel or reschedule an appointment, please call Outpatient Direct (not the clinic) on 1300 855 275.
