Assoc Prof Sengupta is a Visiting Medical Officer (VMO or Consultant) at Austin Health, Heidelberg, Victoria 3084, where he provides outpatient consulting, elective urologic surgery and emergency on-call services. Please note that at public hospitals, patient care is shared between Assoc Prof Sengupta and his colleagues within the Urology Unit, including trainee staff employed by the hospitals. In order to attend the hospital out-patients, you need your general practitioner to arrange a direct referral to the hospital.
After having a consultation with Assoc Prof Sengupta, you may elect to have surgical procedures performed at a public hospital. However, this requires you to be placed on the hospital's surgical waiting list, subsequent to which your care is provided by the hospital. In particular, Assoc Prof Sengupta has little control over the timing of your surgery
at a public hospital.
