For GPs

Direct admission for selected patients at Epworth Freemasons - now available 24 hours


Epworth Freemasons has a strong history and commitment to the care of medical patients. For some patients, direct admission to a hospital facility provides for a more comfortable and timely pathway than an emergency department – when and if it is clinically appropriate.

Our Acute Assessment Service – FAST Track – provides timely access, intensive assessment, care and specialised treatment initiation for unplanned admission patients, prior to transfer to an inpatient ward, intensive care bed or directly discharged from care. This service is available 7 days a week, 24 My hospitals​ hours a day.
