Going to hospital? What to know and expect

Elective surgery

Elective surgery is performed in all of our major metropolitan hospitals and in many country hospitals. If you require elective surgery, your specialist will place you on a hospital’s booking list after a medical assessment. See the elective surgery page for more information.


Going to hospital for surgery or other treatment can be a little daunting, especially if you haven’t been admitted to a hospital before.

You’ll find information about getting to our hospitals, parking, admission, and accounts in our hospitals and health services section.
