Where possible, your own doctor will continue to provide medical care following admission. If your preferred doctor is unable to do so, we will provide a list of visiting doctors for you to choose from.
We will do our best to ensure your preferred doctor is contactable 24 hours a day in case of a medical emergency. If your doctor is unavailable, we will request a home visit from the Locum Service.
Referrals to appropriate specialists are made as required by your attending doctor.
Hospital in the Home services are available, where appropriate, from St Vincent’s, The Royal Melbourne and Austin hospitals.
