Your specialist doctor will organise your admission with the hospital. You will be called by our administration team regarding your personal finance details, and/or by our preadmission nurses to discuss your clinical details. You will be contacted approximately 48 to 72 hours before your planned admission by one of our hospital administration team members. During this call they will confirm your personal details and provide you with an estimate of any excess or hospital expenses not covered by your private health insurance.
Additionally, one of our preadmission team members will contact you to talk about your procedure and complete a nursing assessment and health history interview. This allows you to ask any questions about your upcoming hospital stay and for our staff to ensure we have all the relevant details we need.
Before we can confirm your admission, you must complete the following pre-admission form. Please complete both sides and return it to the hospital where you will be admitted at least seven days before admission. Click here to complete the form.
If you have any further questions, please contact us for further information.
