Pre-admission Clinic

Prior to your hospital admission you may have a pre-admission appointment which is usually 2 – 6 weeks before your procedure.  At this time your health professional will complete a thorough health assessment and provide information and support about your procedure. This may take place in person, over the phone or via video-conference.

You’ll be given information about how to prepare and what to expect before and after your procedure. You’re welcome to ask any questions or clarify any uncertainties.

What to expect

While we aim to keep your appointment on time, please allow 3-6 hours as you may need to see various health professionals including a doctor, anaesthetist, registered nurse, pharmacist, research scientist, social worker, stomal therapist and physiotherapist. They may discuss the following:

What to bring

Every time you come to hospital

  • Your Medicare card
  • Private health insurance card (if you want to use it)
  • Health Care Card and/or concession card (if you have one)
  • Current medications (prescription, over the counter and herbal medicine)
  • Relevant x-rays, scans or any other test results or reports
  • Glasses, hearing and mobility aids
  • A family member or trusted friend for support as you’ll receive a lot of information

For an outpatient or clinic appointment

  • Your appointment letter
  • Any special items listed on your letter
  • WorkCover claim number (if relevant)
  • Snacks, a drink or money to buy refreshments
  • Something to read or do while you wait
