Reminder: Westmead Hospital phone numbers have changed

Westmead Hospital phone number changes

As Westmead Hospital continues to grow, we’re doubling the number of telephone extensions we can support to prepare for a bigger workforce.

From 1 August 2017, all Westmead Hospital phone numbers now start with 8890.

For example, if the Westmead Hospital number you used to dial was 9845 5555, the new number will now be 8890 5555.

From 1 August 2017 to 31 December 2017, only 8890 numbers will work and callers to 9845 numbers will be greeted with a recorded message redirecting them to the 8890 number.

From 1 January 2018, all 9845 and 8821 numbers will not connect to anything.

Please note, this phone upgrade does not affect numbers at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
