 When to visit us

To access the service you will need to have been referred by a specialist doctor who has admitting rights at Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital. They will fill out a day medical unit referral form and a consent form.

You may be referred by Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital or Ryde Hospital emergency department (ED) for a trial of void. The referral can come directly from the ED doctors or after review by a urology doctor.

The referral and consent form must be completely filled out including signature by specialist and a specified drug dose documented.

Transdev bus 575 travels to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital from Hornsby and Turramurra railway stations. This picks up and sets down at the front of the Hospital on Palmerston Road. There are no buses to the Hospital from Waitara Station.

The closest railway stations are Hornsby and Waitara. Hornsby is accessible via both the main Northern Line and the North Shore Line. Waitara is on the North Shore Line. Transdev bus service #575 travels to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital from these stations.

Parking fees apply across the whole hospital in accordance with the NSW Health's hospital car parking fees policy and can be accessed here. Concessional rates apply to those who are eligible.

Disabled parking spaces are available in the multi-storey car park and also on Lowe and Palmerston Roads, though street parking availability is very limited.
