Anyone over the age of 16 who resides in the Ryde or Hunters Hill local government areas with a referral from a surgeon with visiting rights to Ryde Hospital is eligible.
Pre Admission Clinic
Before your operation date you may need to attend an assessment at the Pre Admission Clinic. Hospital staff will inform you if this is needed, depending on your general health, medication you are taking and your surgical procedure. The Pre Admission Clinic will organise tests and help plan your care after your surgery. Hospital staff will tell you if you need to come to a Pre Admission Clinic. Interpreter services are available for Non-English speaking patients.
When you arrive at the hospital for surgery
Come to the main entrance of Ryde Hospital and ask for the admissions officer to check in for surgery. You will then go to the perioperative unit where you will be prepared for your operation. Is it essential that you are NOT LATE for your admission, as being late might result in your procedure being cancelled.
