We recommend you bring these items with you:

  • Book or light reading material

  • Completed admissions forms if you faxed or emailed them to us, or if you have not provided them

  • Any doctor’s appointment details

  • Current x-rays, scans and pathology results

  • Eligible pharmacy or government entitlement discount cards (i.e. safety net card)

  • Glasses, contact lenses or hearing aids if you have them (and a case to safety store them in)

  • Medications and list of medication (see coming to hospital​ for more information)

  • Patients staying overnight or longer will also need to bring a number of things for their hospital stay including:
    • Sleepwear
    • Dressing gown
    • Slippers
    • Toiletries (including soap)

  • Physical aids such as crutches/walking aids (please label them with your name)

  • We ask no more than two family members accompany patients while undergoing treatment at the hospital's Day Medical Unit.

What to wear

  • Wear loose comfortable clothing and sensible shoes.

  • Do not wear makeup, jewellery or body piercings of any kind.

  • All nail polish, acrylics and Shellac must also be removed before your admission as they interfere with our ability to monitor you effectively during your treatment.
