Hospital visits on compassionate/medical grounds

WA’s controlled interstate border is designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.For the latest advice please refer to:

Information on WA's controlled interstate border arrangement, conditions of entry and quarantine (external site)

If you have been granted WA POL permission to visit a patient in a hospital on compassionate grounds within your quarantine period, please note: this is not approval to enter the hospital. You must seek approval to enter the specified hospital from the health service administration. To begin this process, please contact the SCGH Switchboard on (08) 6457 3333 and you will be transferred to the relevant decision-maker.

Why? Precautions need to be put in place to protect staff and patients while you attend the hospital.

If you are in self-quarantine you cannot undergo elective surgery. Contact the hospital to reschedule your surgery for when you are cleared from quarantine.

It is an offence to fail to follow the directions stipulated in your exemption. WA Police have the power to enforce these restrictions and you can be fined up to $50,000.

Education is a key mission of Sir Charles Gairdner Osborne Park Health Care Group (SCGOPHCG), as we know continual learning at all levels is key to improving patient care.

You will come across learners in all fields, from students through to senior practitioners and all are bound by rules of ethical behaviour and confidentiality. If you do not wish a learner to be involved you can say no as we recognise you may be unwell or stressed, however most patients learn more about their condition when learners are involved in their care.

If you have any concerns about any interaction, please contact us via email:
