On the day of admission, you will be greeted by one of our professional and supportive administration staff who will assist you in the completion of your admission paperwork. Once admitted, you will be shown around the hospital to familiarise yourself with the facilities and amenities we offer. You are welcome to ask any questions you may have at this stage or at any time during your stay with us.
You will be allocated a specialist nurse who will complete the relevant clinical paperwork. The final step in your admission process is to meet with a psychiatrist who will review your medical notes and conduct an assessment. Once your one-on-one consultation is complete, your personalised program will be developed based on your individual circumstances and needs.
The first step of the inpatient admission process at South Coast Private is to contact the intake office. Contact can be made from you or your referring GP or Psychiatrist via the online admission tab on the webpage or by phone on 1800 250 000.
