Our Services

Specialist Services

The Central Coast Specialist Centre provides access to a comprehensive range of specialist medical services to the residents of the Central Coast on an affordable and bulk billed basis.

Although we are located in the grounds of Gosford Hospital we are not part of the outpatient service. We are a standalone service operating independently.
