Referral Process

Complete surgical referral template.

Referrals can be faxed, e-referral or posted to Outpatients.

  • All referrals are triaged for sub-specialty and urgency
  • Provision of appropriate clinical information within the "reason for patient referral" section of the referral form is essential for accurate triaging and access to services.

Both GP & patient's NOK will be notified of receipt of referral and expected waiting time for appointment

  • Both GP & patient's NOK will be notified if a referral has been rejected.

Reassessment Process

If patients have a change in health status linked to a current referral and require reassessment, an updated referral letter should be forwarded.
