Update — issues with NHMRC telephone system (updated 28/9/16)

NHMRC has implemented a temporary solution to the phone system fault.

We will provide further updates as information becomes available.

If you dial a Canberra office number, the following will occur:  

  1. A recorded message will ask you to enter the last four digits of the direct number (the extension).
  2. If you enter the extension, you will be transferred directly to that extension.
  3. If you do not enter an extension, you will be transferred to Canberra reception.

Further advice will be issued as information becomes available. Email service is not affected and is the preferred contact method until normal phone services are restored.

For specific assistance please contact:

Please email if you are unable to find the specific email address you need.
