A reminder to health professionals that Peninsula Health does not have a general Gynaecology outpatient service. Women who require gynaecology assessment other than for the services listed above, have two options:

  1. Be referred to a private Gynaecologist and treated as a public patient at Frankston Hospital if surgery is required. A list of hospital specialists with private rooms who can refer patients to the Frankston Hospital Gynaecological  Surgery waiting list can be found on our website (Specialist Directory- see left hand menu)
  2. Be referred to another health service with public gynaecology outpatient services.
