As part of ongoing renovations at Sandringham Hospital, the location of some services and clinics will temporarily change from Monday July 20. The works are due for completion by the end of September 2020. A map can be found here. For details, please call (03) 9076 1288.
We perform echocardiography daily at The Alfred, and now offer one session a week at Sandringham. Please note that the waiting list may be shorter at Sandringham if that is preferred by the patient.
Clinical service overview
We perform the full spectrum of echocardiography, from rest to stress, and offer the latest in imaging including contrast imaging, strain measurements, and 3D imaging.
On the doctor’s behalf, Alfred Health can bulk bill the cost of the consultation for some services through Medicare. This means there is no out of pocket expense to the patient.
MBS-billed services require a current referral. Provide your patient with a 12 month referral to see the specialist of your choice at the requested clinic.
Referrals must be addressed to a named specialist or the Head of service, listed at the top of this page. Clinic consultants are listed on every clinic page.
Note that from time to time, your patient may be seen by another specialist in the clinic, in order to expedite their treatment.
