What is the service I am going to at Caulfield Hospital?
You may have very specific health needs requiring one service or a range of different services over time, at different parts of the hospital.
Main types of health services
Inpatient: If you’re admitted, even overnight, you are a hospital inpatient.
Outpatient: You don’t have a bed at the hospital, but you attend appointments to receive treatment. Prior to this, you may have been a hospital inpatient and now need follow-up care.
Community services: After your admission to hospital, you receive services either in your own home or attend a centre. These services enhance your health, independence and wellbeing.
