Pre-Admission Clinic Assessment
If you are unable to attend the Pre-Admission Clinic at Concord Hospital please ensure your General Practitioner (GP) completes the pre-operative tests required and forwards the results to the Clinic on fax number 02 9767 9041. The Hospital should have sent a letter detailing the tests required. If no letter is received, please contact Admissions on 02 9767 6855 or at email@example.com
If you are required to attend a hospital more than 100 km from your place of residence for medical treatment, both you and the person who accompanies you may be eligible for the government Isolated Patients Travel and Accommodation Assistance Scheme (IPTAAS) which provides a small subsidy to assist with travel and accommodation costs.
More details are available in the Transport for Health Information Guide for Patients and their Carers.
Application forms are available from Concord Hospital or online.
Accommodation at the Hospital
The Hospital has an on-site hostel that provides accommodation for patients who are self-caring and independent.
Accommodation is available for patients when they are:
- required to remain on campus
- living outside of the Sydney metropolitan area and are required to be admitted to the hospital by 0700 hours the next day
- attending a doctor's appointment within Concord Hospital campus (no outside appointments)
Carers of critically ill patients, who live outside of the Sydney metropolitan area and who are required to be frequently available to support the patient may stay at the hostel. However as accommodation is limited, carers may only stay for a maximum of three nights. The Commercial Services Support Unit office can provide a list of nearby hotels. Please contact the Unit on 02 9767 7163.
