Patient transfer from another health facility

It is your right to choose at which hospital you would like to be treated and for hospital personnel to respect your wishes.

If you are either privately insured or a Veteran Affairs (DVA), TAC or Workcover patient, and your doctor wants you to be admitted to hospital, you may, if it is considered clinically appropriate, request a transfer to St John of God Warrnambool Hospital. Your request should be directed through the Emergency Department / Outpatients doctor, nurse or clerical officer, who will inform the specialist on duty so they can authorise a transfer.

The transfer request can also be directed through your accompanying relative or guardian. The doctor, nurse or clerical officer on duty will arrange the transfer.

If you require details of your health fund cover, or experience difficulties with the transfer request, please contact St John of God Warrnambool Hospital on:

Telephone: (03) 5564 0697.

You will speak with the Senior Nurse on duty who will immediately address your questions or concerns. 

You may request to be transferred to St John of God Warrnambool Hospital as an uninsured patient. We advise you to call St John of God Warrnambool Hospital prior to your transfer and ask for uninsured prices and other important details.
