|Guide for use:|
For elective surgery, the listing date is the date on which the patient is added to an elective surgery waiting list.
The acceptance of the notification by the hospital or community health service is conditional upon the provision of adequate information about the patient and the appropriateness of the patient referral.
The hospital or community health service should only accept a patient onto the waiting list when sufficient information has been provided to fulfil state/territory, local and national reporting requirements.
