Outpatients: hospital day visits

The Alice Springs Hospital and Royal Darwin Hospital outpatient departments provide specialist care for patients who do not need hospital admission or have been discharged from hospital. 

Clinics are held daily for many different specialties. These services are improved by the many specialists who regularly visit Darwin and Alice Springs.

Patients are seen either face-to-face or via Telehealth videoconferencing.
