You are here:
To see a specialist you must have a referral letter from your general practitioner or another specialist. Please bring this referral letter to your first appointment.
GP referral letters are valid for one year. Specialist referrals are valid for three months. Other clinical specialties require the referral letter to be presented within three months from date of issue. You should then contact the practice you have been referred to and make an appointment.
It is always a good idea to speak with the specialist’s practice when you make your appointment. They can confirm what you should bring with you.
NOTE: If you are seeing a specialist under workers compensation or third party insurance you will need to bring full details of the insurance so your claim can be lodged.
If you have any questions regarding your appointment, please contact your specialist’s practice directly.
Our specialists try to keep to appointment times, however, delays occasionally occur. Unavoidable issues such as delays in theatre, emergency call-outs and other unpredictable events can cause delays for specialists. Your patience and understanding are appreciated at such times.
If you are unable to attend an appointment, please telephone the specialist's practice to cancel or re-schedule your appointment.
