Before Your Admission

Your doctor will give you information about your treatment, including how to prepare and instructions about your medications. Contact your doctor if you’ve not received any information or you have any questions.

Admission paperwork will be posted to you and needs to be completed and returned to us at P.O. Box 348, Morwell, VIC 3840 two weeks before your hospital stay. If you have difficulty completing the paperwork, please contact us on (03) 5132 1200.

The day before your admission, please phone us on (03) 5132 1200 between 3pm and 7pm to confirm your admission time. This will save unnecessary waiting around for you and your family.

Please do not smoke for at least 24 hours before your hospital stay.

It’s important to let us know if you are unable to attend hospital on the day of your surgery.

When to contact your doctor

  • If you are unwell at any time between booking in and the day of your surgery
  • If you have any queries regarding fasting instructions or medications, including for diabetes
  • If you take medication that may affect your operation – your doctor will advise whether you should stop taking your medication prior to going to hospital
