Elective Surgery

This page has been developed to provide GPs, surgeons, nursing and operational staff and the Tasmanian general public with access to the elective surgery resources, including policies and guidelines developed under Tasmania's Elective Surgery Improvement Plan.

National Elective Surgery Urgency Categorisation Guideline

The Guideline was developed with input from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS), the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO) the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and ten affiliated surgical specialities.
