Before you arrive

  • For surgical admission: To streamline your admission it is recommended you submit your admission papers seven (7) days prior to your surgical appointment date.
  • All your paper work will be provided to you by your GP or Specialist
  • Ensure you adhere to instructions for fasting prior to surgery
  • Check your hospital account details to verify if you have appropriate private health cover; ensure your insurance status is current and details are up to date and correct.
  • If the matter involves a compensation claim please confirm your entitlement for hospital admission with your insurer.
  • If you are self-insured and require a quote for your admission, please contact our Patient Accounts Department.  All payments will be required to be finalised prior to your admission.
  • If you have an Advanced Care Directive form please bring with you upon admission or ask a hospital staff member for a form to complete.

To minimise delays we ask that you:

Bring a signed up-to-date medication list with you and if you have an Advanced Care Directive please ensure that you have brought a signed and witnessed copy with you and give it to the admitting nurse.

Check your hospital account details:

  • Please ensure that you have confirmed your insurance status with your health fund. Any excess, gap, co-payment etc must be paid on admission or discharge.
  • If you are admitted under a compensation claim (Worker’s compensation, Third Party etc) please ensure that your insurer has confirmed your entitlement before admission.
  • If you are insured or self-insured and need information,  please contact our Patient Accounts department on (08 85520535 for an estimate of costs of hospitalisation. This must be paid on or prior to admission.)
