When we receive your referral, it will be processed within 2-3 business days. We’ll reach out with any questions or issues.
We contact your patient to discuss fees, the appropriate clinician and appointment times. They see our clinicians from their own home, or at the GP practice if you prefer.
We provide you with feedback and treatment advice in writing within 7 days of the appointment.
For psychiatry appointments, send us a referral letter with the patient’s contact details (including email) + relevant history.

From 1/11/2022 we are again able to offer bulk billed one off assessments (291s) to patients in rural areas (MM2-7). We will need a referral specifically requesting a 291. Please note this does not apply to ongoing, ADHD or report assessments.
