Backpacker killer IVAN MILAT is expected to remain at a Sydney hospital after being transferred from Goulburn's supermax jail.

It's understood  he was transferred to the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick on Monday afternoon and is being held in a secure annex of the hospital where inmates are treated.

It's believed Milat is there for a diagnostic procedure and is expected to return to the Goulburn supermax jail in the coming days.

The 74-year-old, who murdered seven backpackers whose bodies were found in makeshift graves in the Belanglo State Forest in the 1990s, was sentenced in 1996 to seven consecutive life sentences.
