Established in 1979, Hospital Patient Guide is the definitive supplier of patient publications across Australia. We operate as a family business, and we are based in Altona, Melbourne.

We specialise in waiting area publications, admission publications and bedside publications for public and private hospital patients across New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

We work with an extensive range of companies and vendors whose products and services are useful to patients, and we are carefully selective of the content representation within the patient guides. This is to ensure quality references, and proper allocation of space to businesses so their material isn’t lost but instead, easily retained by patients.

Our hospital patient guides have all-round benefits, in that businesses who promote their services in the guides experience sales growth, and patients have access to essential information and helpful contacts , easily encapsulated in one concise guide.

Hospital Patient Guides’ waiting area, admission and bedside publications are a vital source of useful information for patients; in fact the only detailed information source other than asking hospital staff directly. Hospital Patient Guides’ publications cover information that maps out patients’ stays, from beginning to end, including but not limited to:

  • Banking and financial advisers
  • Insurance
  • Support such as counselling, spiritual guidance and help for families
  • Patients’ rights and responsibilities
  • Admission and discharge information
  • Hospital history including medical departments, amenities etc.
  • Suitable rehabilitation and therapy
  • Carers
  • Disability services
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Medication supplies
  • Medical equipment
  • Workcover

We can also customise waiting area, admission and bedside patient guides and information directories outside of the hospital industry – medical, aged care, and other companies also benefit from our comprehensive compilations. Read more about our services here.
