Referrals and appointments
All appointments are by referral only. New patients who are referred to a Medical or Radiation Oncologist will be contacted within two days of a referral being made. Follow-up appointments are made after the clinic attendance at the reception desk or by telephone. Patients requiring a blood test will need to visit the Pathology Department (Pathology North) on level 3 of the NewMed Building (located between north and south block), one hour prior to your appointment time.
Patients referred to a particular doctor are likely to be charged by the hospital. No consultation fee is higher than the Medicare benefit or the scheduled fee.
Information and Support Services
Information packages are available at the time of your first consultation.
The Medical Centre waiting room has two laptops available for use with free wifi access to the internet. The laptops display selected links that provide information relevant to treatment and care. Magazines and daily newspapers are also available.
