We prefer to receive electronic referrals (eReferrals) from GPs.
If you're not set up for eReferrals, you can fax your completed Specialist Clinics Referral form to 03 9496 2097. We do not accept referrals by email.
If you have questions, contact the GP Priority Line on 03 9496 2900.
Referral guidelines are also published to Health Pathways Melbourne.
The HealthLink eReferral Solution allows you to submit pre-populated eReferrals directly into our Patient Administration System.
The benefit of this system is:
HealthLink SmartForms are available with leading GP clinical software vendors.

Accepted referrals are triaged as urgent or routine:
Where a referral is incomplete or declined, Specialist Clinics will send a letter to the referrer (and the patient in the case of a declined referral) notifying them of the outcome.
