Many of our specialists speak a foreign language and our specialists who treat international patients cover a broad spectrum of specialities.

Key information for international patients:

  • International patients do not need a GP referral to see a specialist here in Australia
  • International visitors to Australia who are in need of urgent medical care can be treated at Epworth's Emergency Department
  • If you require an interpreter (including Auslan) please visit our Interpreter Services page
