Disability access


Tell staff if you have a physical need so that they can make your visit easier.

Getting around

Access for people with disabilities includes:

  • Lifts to all floors of the hospital.
  • Accessible toilets on the ground level and levels 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 of The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne.
  • A direct dial taxi phone (freecall) on the ground floor of the RDHM opposite the lifts.
  • A text telephone (TTY) on the ground floor of the RDHM opposite the lifts.
  • An accredited changing places toilet on the ground floor. It is available for hospital visitors and the general public.

Where to get help?

We have an Information Desk on the ground floor just inside the Main Entrance of RDHM. Our staff can assist you with any questions you may have.

Where is an information counter that has an accessible writing desk?

Patient reception counters on all levels are at seated (wheelchair) height.

Four disabled parking spaces and a wheelchair ramp are on Lynch Street. Lynch Street is a oneway lane off Cardigan Street.
