The Surgical Bookings office is responsible for the booking of elective surgery patients for surgery. This unit works in close collaboration with the Elective Surgery Access Team in order to ensure equity of access to all patients waiting for elective surgery.
The Unit consists of a multidisciplinary team that utilise both clinical and administrative skills in order to ensure that patients receive appropriate advice in relation to waiting times and processes.
Canberra Hospital is a major trauma hospital and sometimes experiences a high demand for emergency admissions. When this occurs, we may need to reschedule elective surgery. Canberra Hospital staff understand how unsettling this can be and will try not to postpone booked surgery. Should this occur, we will rebook your surgery as soon as possible.
