Making an appointment at RDH

Except in an emergency, admission to hospital is through referral from your GP.

You must have a pre-admission interview with the pre-admission clinic on the ground floor of the hospital.

During the interview, details of your admission will be taken and, where appropriate, payment will be discussed.

Making a pre-admission appointment

You must make an appointment for a pre-admission interview by phoning (08) 8922 8243 or (08) 8922 8389.

The interview usually takes about two hours.

If you are an obstetric patient you should have your pre-admission interview four weeks before you are admitted.


If you are going to hospital for surgery you should contact the theatre scheduler on (08) 8922 8389 a week before your surgery and the day before to check if it is cancelled due to bed shortages.

While every effort is made to ensure your admission happens on the date given, at times the number of emergency admissions may mean your appointment is postponed.

If you need to cancel your admission, call (08) 8922 8243 or (08) 8922 8389.

If you need to cancel your appointment, call (08) 8922 8260.
