Elective Surgical Waitlists
Staff members in the Central Admission Services Area manage all Elective Surgical Waitlists. The co-ordinator can take calls from GPs, practice staff and patients with queries regarding patients on Royal Perth Hospital’s surgical waiting lists.
In some instances, it may be necessary to transfer the call to the specialty area concerned or to locate the patient’s health record, investigate the situation and liaise with the appropriate staff before re-contacting either the GP and/or patient to inform of the situation.
