"Trying to make an outpatients appointment at Maroondah Hospital."

About: Maroondah Hospital

(as the patient),

Starting from 3:30 pm, spent twenty minutes trying to call Maroondah Hospital outpatients department (which closes at 4 pm) to schedule an appointment.

The *only* time someone answered the phone, it seemed to be an accident, and they immediately hung up.

Dear Wazza

I am really sorry to read about your experience in trying to contact Maroondah Hospital and I understand how important it is to receive a timely reception and response when you make a telephone call. I have since made a call to Maroondah Hospital myself and I have made arrangements for you to contact our Associate Director of Specialist Clinics, Michelle Oliver. Her contact number is 9871 3300 or email address is Michelle.Oliver@easternhealth.org.au. Michelle is more than happy to discuss this with you and follow-up further if you would like her to do so. Once again, I am sorry that you experienced this issue contacting us. Kind regards and thank you - Alan Lilly
