The Surgical Bookings Office is responsible for booking elective surgery patients. We work in close collaboration with the Elective Surgery Access Team to ensure everyone has equal access to elective surgery.
The unit consists of a multidisciplinary team with clinical and administrative skills who provide advice and information on surgery wait times and processes.
The Canberra Hospital is a major trauma hospital that sometimes experiences high demand for emergency admissions. Sometimes we may need to reschedule elective surgeries to meet this demand. We know how unsettling this can be and thank you for your understanding.
We are located in the Pre-Admission Clinic on the lower level of the Theatre Complex, next to the Medical Imaging Department. You can access the unit through the Emergency Department entry or by following the signs from the Main Reception.
