Every patient matters

Medical emergencies are unpredictable and unplanned. They can also be very stressful for patients and their loved ones.

We understand you want your health concerns dealt with quickly and expertly, by experienced emergency doctors.

We know you expect access to quality emergency treatment, comprehensive diagnostic facilities and specialist referral.

We recognise your loved ones want to be involved in your care and informed about your progress.

Whether you are admitted to hospital, or discharged to the comfort of your own home, at Epworth, every patient matters.

When sporting injuries happen, you want quick answers and the best treatment so you can get back out on the field again. We’ll ensure excellent care even after you leave emergency, with our access to a wide variety of private specialist services, including orthopaedics and sports medicine.

For Families and Visitors

We have had to limit visitor numbers in both the Emergency Department and waiting room, to keep everyone safe from infection. See latest COVID-19 information.

We encourage our patients to keep in touch with their families throughout their time with us, and welcome family members and friends to assist with your comfort needs. We need to limit visitor movement through the department, and ask that you follow staff directions.

Visitors are asked to respect the privacy of all patients in the Emergency Department, and understand that we will not give confidential information over the phone to callers.
