Discharge planning for our patients prior to your discharge home

Home  ›  Admissions   ›   Discharge planning for our patients prior to your discharge home

Our team will work with you planning your discharge and making arrangements for post-operative appointments so the transition from hospital to home is as smooth as possible. Home services will be arranged as needed.

Our Discharge Coordinator will be in touch with you early in your hospital stay and you will be given instructions related to your recovery on discharge.

The discharge summary will also be forwarded to your referring General Practitioner once you have been discharged.

Patients are advised not to drive for 24 hours after receiving a general anaesthetic. Please arrange to be collected between 9.30am and 10am on the day of your discharge. Day patients are discharged on the same day. It is advisable to have someone collect you.

All accounts for services not covered by your private health insurance are to be paid (cash or eftpos) on discharge.
