SA Health offers a wide variety of outpatient services at major hospitals, GP Plus or community based clinics.

Outpatient services are planned procedures, consultations or tests that are carried out by a specialist but do not require an overnight stay. These generally occur in public hospitals.

Outpatient services may include:

  • assessments – for example, scans or lab tests
  • treatments – for example, day surgery or chemotherapy
  • chronic disease management – for example, diabetes monitoring
  • prevention and education services – counselling or lifestyle advisors.
