A referral is required to access our services. Referrals must be in writing by the referring practitioner (either your GP or Specialist) and dated. It is important that your practitioner state whether the referral is urgent or routine. The referral should provide a brief description of the main concerns, the background, and the goal of the referral.
You and your practitioner’s goals may include:
- One-off assessment and management advice or second opinion.
- Ongoing psychiatric continuing care, if indicated.
- Admission to hospital or referral to day therapy and psychotherapy programs.
- Referral to day therapy and psychotherapy programs.
- Telehealth care.
- Case conferences.
- Consultation liaison whilst an inpatient.
- Expert witness in the family court arena.
Your referral can be faxed or posted.
Your referral will be reviewed by our team. If the referral is suitable, we will then be in contact with you to arrange an appointment, usually by email. Please ensure we know if it is urgent.
