We work to prevent and to treat illness, disability and death caused by a wide range of infectious diseases.
Clinical service overview
Infectious Diseases outpatient clinics provide booked medical appointments with an Infectious Diseases Physician. The Infectious Diseases Unit has over 20 specialists working in the clinic across the week. Infectious Diseases Registrars who are completing their training also provide appointments in outpatients.
The clinic sees patients with a broad range of infectious diseases and has a number of specialist infectious diseases clinics, including:
- general infectious diseases
- HIV/AIDS and sexually transmissable infections
- infections in immunosuppressed individuals
- orthopaedic and post-surgical infections
- respiratory infections and tuberculosis
- viral hepatitis
As well as these specialty clinics, we also run a Travel Medicine Clinic which can assist people wishing to travel with their infectious diseases risk and precautions whilst overseas.
We run clinics every day of the week and triage referrals to the appropriate clinician. The majority of clinics are public outpatient clinics.
