Patient Information

Coming to your Appointment

Before your visit we will send you an appointment letter with our contact details, address and an outline of the consultation fee. As our neurosurgeons visit and consult in many locations throughout Queensland, it is very important that you please check the address of your appointment.

On the day of your appointment you will need to bring:

  • your referral letter
  • any previous and recent x-rays or scans
  • your completed health history questionnaire

It is often a good idea to write down any questions you might want to ask your neurosurgeon.

Brisbane Clinical Neuroscience Centre (BCNC) neurosurgeons are happy to see patients from WorkCover or other third party insurers, we do however require written authority from your case manager.

Arranging your Surgery

Undergoing a surgical procedure can be a difficult time, but we are here to help you. Our theatre bookings team will make all the arrangements. You should receive an admission letter which contains details about admission times, fasting, your anaesthetists and a quote for your procedure. The hospital where you are booked in for your surgery will also require you to complete some paperwork.
