It is a new requirement from the Department of Health that Victorian public health services perform regular audits of patients waiting for specialist clinic (outpatient) appointments.
The Specialist Clinics (outpatients) department at the Royal Melbourne Hospital will be commencing a specialist clinic (outpatient) waitlist auditing process.
Patients who have been waiting more than 12 months for a specialist clinic (outpatient) appointment will start to receive a letter and text message to ask if they still require an appointment with the Specialist Clinic/s they are on the waitlist for.
