If applicable, please follow your Doctor's instructions regarding fasting and management of your usual medications. We ask that you bring all medication, including vitamins and supplements you are currently taking, in the original dispensed packaging with repeat authority/prescriptions and give these to the nursing staff on admission.
It is very helpful if you can provide a typed list of current medications from your GP. Knowing what medications you are taking is important information for people caring for you during your hospital stay.
On the day of your admission, please present to the reception desk located close to the main entrance of the hospital. After you have been registered, you will be transferred to an appropriate admission area. In some cases you may be admitted directly to your room.
If you are being admitted for a surgical procedure, you may meet with your Anaesthetist and be prepared for your surgery. After this, you will go to the operating theatre.
Please remember to wear comfortable clothing and shoes, and to keep jewellery to a minimum. We recommend not bringing any valuables to hospital with you.
If you are undergoing a day procedure, you must have a responsible adult accompany you home and stay with you overnight after discharge. We will be able to advise you at the time of admission of the approximate time that you will be ready to leave the hospital.
If you are an overnight patient, your expected discharge date and time will be discussed with you during your stay.
Visitors please consider the need to visit. As an alternative we encourage you to call loved ones directly via the hospital's switchboard number or direct room number instead.
Have your screening information ready for display on your phone as you enter the hospital.
