Once your surgery has been decided on, our practice staff will advise you of the details on your admission to Hospital. It is necessary for you to register your admission at the relevant hospital.
We have provided the links for you to access the hospitals below:
Northside Gynaecology will provide:
- Surgery Confirmation Letter – detailing your admission, fasting times, anaesthetist and instructions on what to do.
- Estimate of Medical Fee’s – every effort is made to provide you with the Estimate of Fee’s immediately, if you have not received this please contact us.
- QML Blood form – sometimes it is a requirement that you have a Full Blood Count, Group & Hold the day before surgery. This is not a fasting blood test. If your surgery is on the Monday morning then you can do this on Saturday morning.
- Patient Information – In most cases we can provide you with patient information on your surgery, please ask if you require further information. The doctor will usually provide this to you.
Once all information is received your surgery is then confirmed. The hospital will contact you the day before your admission as this is when they do the health fund check’s to determine any level of excess you might have on your health insurance policy. For patient’s whom do not have private health insurance and are self funding you should enquire immediately to the hospital to determine the cost for the hospital stay.
