Patient information series 

Over the year, there will be multiple seminars run by top specialists at St John of God Murdoch Hospital.

The information seminars are designed for community members to come along to our hospital and learn more about various procedures, services of interest, recovery and the different options available. Some of the procedures covered will include joint replacement, paediatric ear, nose and throat, women’s health procedures and bariatric surgery.

Anyone can attend these seminars, without a referral, and it is a welcoming environment with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Best of all, the patient information seminars are completely free of charge.
