We work hard to understand the requirements of our referrers and to exceed your expectations. We’ll keep you informed at all stages of your patient’s journey.
We have included some common questions for General Practitioners and other Valued Referrers, as well as downloadable resources such as brochures and service information for your reading.
To ensure a smooth booking process, we ask that you, our valued referrer send us a copy of your patients referral and relevant investigatory results soon after their appointment with you.
Once we receive the referral, our support team will assist your patient with making an appointment. Please advise your patient if they have not heard from us within 3 business after their referral has been sent over, to call the practice on 02 4321 0500.
Our specialists have trained at many of the most respected healthcare learning institutions and hospitals around Australia and internationally in order to develop their clinical and academic skills. Our goal is to bring the highest standard of obstetric and gynaecological medical and surgical expertise attainable to The Central Coast.
Dr Skilbeck: Exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital
Dr Shah: Exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital
Dr Hankins: Both Gosford Private Hospital and Gosford Public Hospital
Yes Dr Hankins’ patients can be consented at our private practice to have surgery at Gosford Public Hospital, if this is their preference.
Consulting privately often benefits the patient to minimise the wait time currently experienced at Gosford Public Hospital for their initial assessment and triage.
Please note, upon submission of the Consent for Surgery Form to Gosford Public Hospital, your patient will be placed on the public waiting list in accordance with the appropriate recommended time frame as advised by the doctor. In most instances Dr Hankins will perform the surgery for the patient, however due to operational matters and length of waitlists, this is not always possible and therefore not guaranteed.
Please note: Dr Skilbeck and Shah operate exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital so the above information does not apply to their patients.
If you wish to make a booking with one of our specialists or allied health team, please get in touch with our friendly support staff.
We understand the need for women-led care and have an easy referral system to other health care professionals who provide a range of services specialised to your individual needs.
