URGENT REFERRALS

Please call the rooms on 07 3163 7820 and advise our staff of the urgent nature of the referral. We will always ensure the referred patient is seen in a timely manner. Please also fax the referral to 07 3163 1371 to allow one of our specialists to review the referral, if required.

We accept electronic referrals through Medical Objects but ask that you or your receptionist phones our staff prior to sending urgent referrals.

Our doctors are happy to take calls from referring doctors to discuss clinical cases and arrange urgent appointments or hospital admissions.
