Arriving at hospital

Admission day – arriving at hospital

When you arrive at the hospital, please go to the Main Reception located on the ground floor.

If you are admitting to hospital and not having surgery, you will be admitted directly to your ward. 

Patients who are having surgery

Following registration, patients who are admitting for surgery, will be taken to the admissions lounge.

There a nurse will admit you, answer your questions and prepare you for surgery. You will then be transferred directly to the operating theatre.

There is limited space in the admissions lounge, so bring only one support person. If you are staying overnight, please limit your luggage to a small overnight bag.

If your family plans to wait while you are having your surgery, they will be asked to wait in an allocated waiting area or the cafe located on the ground floor.
