How to make a referral

To obtain an appointment for your patient please fax a Specialist Clinics GP referral form to Specialist Clinics.

Where appropriate, referrals should be provided for an indefinite period so that another referral is not required in the future.

In order to meet Medicare legislation, all referrals must be addressed to a named consultant. Referrals will not be accepted without a named consultant. A list of named consultants can be found below.
