Public Patients

Dr Raoul Pope welcomes both private and public patients. He maintains an active interest in public health, and training the next generation of neurosurgeons.

Unforutantely, patients wishing to be seen via the Medicare funded Concord Public Hospital Neurosurgical Department can expect wait times of 12-months to get an appointment. Simply put, demand for the service exceeds supply.

There is no fee for this service, but wait times are significant. Most of the doctors working within the Concord Public Hospital Neurosurgical Department are junior doctors in training and work under Dr Pope’s supervision.

Please phone (02) 9767 6416 for the main booking number. You will need a GP referral and a valid Medicare card.

The Concord Public Neurosurgery Clinic cannot see WorkCover, CTP or other 3rd party insured cases.
