Specialities providing day procedures are, Dental, Ear Nose & Throat, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Gynaecology, Ophthalmology, Maxillo Facial, Orthopaedics, Urology and Vascular surgery.
The Unit has a well appointed 2nd stage recovery area with comfortable recliner chairs where patients are cared for by staff specifically trained in day surgery care and recovery.
Admission to the Day Surgery Unit is available to patients covered by a health fund, the Department of Veteran Affairs and Uninsured patients are welcome.
