Day Only Programs
South Coast Private has developed a series of day only programs for patients who do not require overnight inpatient service. These programs are attended by former patients of the hospital, or those requiring clinical intervention within the community. At present, South Coast Private runs the following Day Programs.
Admission to Day Programs
To be admitted to one of our Day programs, patients will be assessed by a psychiatrist at our Wollongong Clinic. Once a referral is received by a treating General Practitioner, one of our consulting psychiatrists will undertake an initial assessment and then refer the patient for assessment by the Day Program staff. This assessment will assist in determining which program will best suit one of our patient’s specific needs. It will also assist staff in establishing a patient group which can work cohesively throughout the process.
Full day programs run between 9.00am and 2.30pm.
