Royal Melbourne Hospital
Our health justice partnership with the Royal Melbourne Hospital through our 'Melbourne Legal Care' project focuses on preventative law.
Through this partnership, our lawyers offer free legal assistance to inpatients and outpatients of the hospital.
For more information about the service or to make an appointment, please call 9328 1885.

We evaluated our HJP with RMH in 2018. This showed that social workers are more confident to recognise legal issues and refer their patients. Patients who saw a lawyer said that they felt better able to cope with their legal matter. You can read the report here.
We also conducted a cross-site evaluation of our Health Justice Partnerships and the benefits it provides to the coordination of care for vulnerable patients. You can read our report here.
