If referred for surgery at Stawell Regional Health your doctor will arrange for staff from the Pre-Admission Clinic to contact you before you have your elective surgery.  If you are having a joint replacement a time will also be made to see other staff that will be involved in your care.  Staff will provide you with details about your surgery, your stay in hospital, what to expect after your surgery and when you go home.  It is a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have before your surgery.

You will need to return any paperwork you have been sent before your surgery.  This is so we know we have the most current information about your health.  The Clinic Coordinator can be contacted on 5358 8569 from Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.00pm.
