Referrals to Specialists
General Practitioners may refer patients for admission to The Valley Private hospital 24 hours a day seven days a week.
This can be done by contacting a consultant to arrange admission or via the Emergency Department.
The Emergency Department:
- Provides a 7 day 24 hour emergency service for patients
- Provides an after hours service for GP Practices in the area
- Manages an on call consultant roster covering major specialties to ensure there is always a consultant available to accept and treat acute admissions
Elective admissions are arranged through the office of an accredited medical practitioner. In most cases, a General Practitioner refers a patient to a consultant at their rooms where an elective admission is arranged, if appropriate.
Doctors seeking accreditation at the hospital should contact the Executive Office on +61 03 9549 6331. Please note that you will be credentialed for both South Eastern and The Valley. The Medical Advisory Committee is across both hospitals. Temporary privileges can be quickly assessed if required urgently.
