FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
What is a referral and why do I need one?
A referral is a letter from your GP (or another specialist) addressed to our clinic.
The referral letter will explain the medical reason why you’re being referred to our clinic and it will also include any relevant medical history, including allergies and medications.
Medical specialists generally don’t see patients without current referrals. It is a Medicare requirement that you attend with a valid referral in order to be bulk billed.
GP referrals are usually only valid for one year – meaning you will need to book an appointment with a GP to get a new referral if your previous referral is more than twelve months old. Specialist or hospital referrals are valid for 3 months.
