Tasmanian Health Organisation - South (THO-South) is pleased to announce the official launch of its new Outpatient Clinics website.

This one-stop shop for health professionals, patients and the wider community has the most up-to-date information on all THO-South outpatient clinics – including their location, opening hours and important referral requirements.

This resource has a dedicated section to make it easier for patients and carers who need to change or cancel their appointments, which will create greater efficiencies in outpatient waiting lists.

The site will also reduce referral processing times by providing health professionals with the information they need at their fingertips.

Outpatient clinics are a key part of Tasmania's health care system and this website will improve the experience between patients and hospitals.

Every day, up to 100 Tasmanians do not turn up to their medical appointments. This leaves patients frustrated and the time of our specialists is wasted.

These missed outpatient appointments cost our health system many thousands of dollars each day, and delays other Tasmanians in receiving the outpatient care that they require when they need it.

You can get started using the website by browsing through the menu at the top of this page.
