Steps to admission at Wesley Hospitals
Step 1: Consider your options to pay for your treatment
Admission into Wesley Hospital is available to patients with private health insurance or those who can fund their treatment by other means.
As a private hospital, we are able to arrange payment through your private health insurance. However, if you don’t have private health insurance, then you may wish to consider our other treatment payment options. Read more to find a treatment payment option plan to suit you.
Step 2: Obtain a referral
You can get a referral through your general practitioner (GP) or psychiatrist. If you don’t have a GP or psychiatrist already, we can arrange for one of our psychiatrists to assess you and submit our patient referral form. Please contact our reception staff on 1300 924 522 to arrange an appointment.
Step 3: Make an appointment with us
Call us on 1300 924 522 where one of our caring nurses will speak with you over the phone. They will ask you a few questions to help understand your particular needs and circumstances.
If you have carried out Step 1 and 2, our nurse will speak to you about setting up a time for a face-to-face pre-admission assessment with one of our psychologists.
Alternatively, complete the admission enquiry form and one of our caring nurses will be in touch with you.
Step 4: Pre-admission assessment
The face-to-face pre-admission assessment with our psychologist helps us to understand you and your needs. It will also help our psychologist put together the best and most effective treatment plan for you. Our psychologist will give the final go-ahead for admission, and depending on our placement availability, will also arrange an admission date with you.
Step 5: Day of admission
Admission as an inpatient
Wesley Hospital provides hospital stay services if you need 24-hour hospital care. On the day of your admission as an inpatient, our admissions nurse will meet you at reception and will take you through any paperwork and get you settled into your room.
Admission as a day patient
Our day patient programs offer you treatment and ongoing support if you don’t need the focused care that our inpatient treatment program offers. On your first day of attendance as a day patient, our admissions nurse will meet you at reception and then show you to your treatment room for the day.
