Frequently asked questions

When should I stop taking my usual medications?

Your nurse will call you 2-3 days before surgery to discuss your admission details. It is advised that you discuss this with your operating surgeon (and anaesthetist if possible, prior to admission), as some medications need to be stopped up to 10 days prior to surgery.

What time is discharge?

This will vary depending on your condition. If you are having an overnight stay, morning discharges are 10 am unless by prior arrangement.

What are my payment options?

All leading credit cards, Eftpos, and cash are accepted.

What are the visiting times?
