Public Patients

All of the surgeons at the Victorian Orthopaedic Centre have a strong commitment to the public hospital system with regular clinics in the Specialist Clinics area.

Public patients who have been seen previously at Victorian Orthopaedic Centre do not receive any special access to the Royal Children’s Hospital as indeed is the case for Private patients at RCH. (see Private Insurance).

It is important to understand therefore that an appointment at Victorian Orthopaedic Centre does not provide a shortcut to care through the public hospital. Public patients requiring surgery will still need to be referred on to the specialist clinics.
