Public Patient Appointments
To get a public appointment your referring doctor must send a letter to the Princess Alexandra Hospital requesting an appointment. There is no guarantee that you will be able to see a particular doctor. Your GP should include as much information as possible to allow us to decide how urgent your referral is
Please let our secretaries know if you require DVA transport to the appointment. They will be happy to arrange this for you. A DVA car will also be available to take you home.
Please arrive 5 minutes before your appointment. We appreciate your time is very valuable and we try to run on schedule. However, because of the nature of our work in liver transplant, our schedules are very unpredictable. Please keep your mobile phones turned on and with you on the day of your appointment. If we are called away to urgently operate, our secretaries will contact you and reschedule. This does not happen often, but we apologise in advance if it does.
Please bring with you:
- Your doctor’s referral letter
- All relevant x-rays and blood tests – we must have your actual x-rays (not just the report) to determine the best course of treatment.
- Any family members you need to support you.
- Your medicare card and health fund detail.
