For medical professionals
Patients can only be admitted under the care of a medical practitioner who has accreditation with St John of God Bendigo Hospital.
All practitioners are required to submit a hospital booking form for each patient, and in turn the patient will be provided with an informed financial consent to sign on admission.
To admit, treat and/or operate on patients at St John of God Bendigo Hospital all medical, dental and allied health practitioners must have their credentials reviewed and a specific scope of practice defined by our hospital.
Credentialing enquiries to be directed to the Credentialing Officer at ExecSupport.Bendigo@sjog.org.au or on (03) 5434 43481.
