To obtain an appointment for your patient please fax a Specialist Clinics GP referral form to 9496 2097.
Where appropriate, referrals should be provided for an indefinite period so that another referral is not required in the future.
Referrals should be addressed to a named consultant. See our Clinic Specialties and their Respective Head of Unit List.
Austin Health is now receiving electronic referrals from General Practice, utilising your clinical software system. There is no cost to your practice for sending referrals electronically. For more information on sending eReferrals please contact Lauren Jordan on (03) 9496 6235 or email email@example.com
Accepted referrals will be triaged as ‘urgent' or ‘routine':
Where a referral is incomplete or declined, Specialist Clinics will send a letter to the referrer (and patient in the case of a declined referral) notifying them of this.
If you have any questions, please contact our GP liaison nurse on 9496 2533.
Links to these guidelines can be found below. Austin Health referral guidelines will also be published to Health Pathways Melbourne.
