Outpatient clinics

Our weekly Infectious Diseases Outpatient Clinic is held every Tuesday morning at UHW. In addition, we have two ward-based clinics each week in which we see urgent referrals.  Appointments for the ward-based clinic can only be booked by clinical staff.

Ward A7

Ward A7 at UHW is the regional Infectious Diseases Unit. The ward has several negative pressure rooms, where patients can be isolated from other patients to prevent the spread of infection.
