For acute admissions, phone the hospital coordinator on 07 5430 3314
- To assess the bed situation
- To assess the appropriateness of the admission
- To assess visiting medical practitioner (VMP) availability to accept admission
If admission appropriate and bed available and VMP accepts admission, the patient can then be sent directly to main reception at the hospital. The GP practice must notify the hospital coordinator that the VMP has accepted care of the patient so the appropriate bed can be held.
