Your planned surgical admission
You and your Doctor have agreed that there is a need for surgical treatment. Once you have decided to proceed with surgery you should advise your surgeon. Due to the complex nature of the admission process, Sunshine Coast & Spine will coordinate and arrange all of your admission details. Once your admission has been arranged you will be notified in writing of your admission details.
Prior to your admission to hospital you will be contacted to verbally confirm all of your admission details. Should you require any information or additional assistance throughout this time please do not hesitate to contact our office on 07 5493 5100 and ask to speak directly to your treating doctors assistant.
Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with the billing information which is found here.
Patient and staff safety is our highest priority at Sunshine Coast Brain & Spine.
For patients with appointments, if you are suffering any symptoms such as fever, dry cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath or have recently travelled interstate, overseas or been in contact with someone who has returned from interstate or overseas, or have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, please contact our friendly reception team before attending the clinic. A telehealth appointment may be an alternative method of speaking with our surgeons.
During this current outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus we want to assure all of our patients that we will continue to implement procedures to maintain a hygienic clinical environment. This includes:
- Disinfecting and wiping down all treatment surfaces
- Regular cleaning of rooms and shared equipment
- Thorough cleaning of all communal items including reception chairs, tables, door handles, pens and other shared items
- All staff have access to infection control procedures and training to implement these as necessary
We are carefully monitoring the directions and advice of Queensland Health, the Australian Government Department of Health and the World Health Organization. In the meantime, it is still business as usual and our doors are open.
Sunshine Coast Brain & Spine wishes to apologise for the inconvenience caused and thanks you for your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented situation.
