For medical professionals

Information for Doctors

All medical practitioners and allied health professionals must be accredited and hold clinical privileges in order to admit patients or consult at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital.

Referrals

Patients may be referred directly to us using our referral form.

Who can refer?

  • Medical staff (surgeons, physicians, general practitioners)
  • Physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and case coordinators are welcome to refer but a referral from a medical professional is also required.

Accreditation process

All applications for clinical admitting rights are reviewed by our Credentialing Committee and final approval is via our Medical Advisory Committee who make recommendations to the Chief Executive Officer/ Director of Nursing.

You must provide evidence of professional indemnity and medical registration as a part of our initial and ongoing accreditation process.

You may then receive interim approval for temporary privileges by the CEO/DON until the next meeting of the Credentials Committee, which formally considers and approves or rejects applications. This process is in line with the governance of our Medical By-Laws.

You will be notified of any approval or accreditation you are granted and if your application is unsuccessful.

For further information about the accreditation process, please contact our Chief Executive Officer/ Director of Nursing:
Tel: on (03) 9788 3301
