Referring a patient
If you are referring a patient to Prof. Berney, it is helpful to include an updated list of current medications, as many patients don’t necessarily remember all the names and dosage of their prescribed treatments. Similarly, recent blood tests, ultrasound or CT-scan imaging, as well as any other relevant information are always welcome.
Prof. Berney likes to keep a very close relationship with his referring GPs. He will be more than happy to contact you directly regarding the management plan of one of your patients, if requested.
Patients with a private medical insurance will be directly admitted at Waratah Private Hospital and those who are uninsured will be transferred to Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital under Prof Berney’s care.
After-hours, you should send your patient to the closest Emergency Department. Prof Berney is the Head of Department of General Surgery at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital and he will be notified by the “on call” team if one of your patients requires urgent surgical attention, under his care.
