BankstownIf you receive a referral letter from your doctor for a consultation at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital outpatient clinic, you will need to contact the clinic directly to make an appointment. We will try to provide you with an appointment as soon as possible and at a time convenient to you.

Your appointment

Once you have arranged your appointment, we will confirm it with you by phone and/or confirmation letter. You may also choose to have a reminder sent to you via SMS. On the day, you may experience a delay as some people with special needs may be seen first. Please inform staff if you are experiencing a long wait or would like to leave the clinic until it's time for your appointment.

Changing or cancelling your appointment

If you are unable to keep your appointment or would like to change your appointment time or do not require any further appointments, please advise staff as soon as possible so we can offer the appointment to someone else. If you fail to attend an appointment, you and your referring doctor will be notified and you may be discharged from the clinic.
