Referrals must be in writing. Urgent referrals are to be forwarded by phone or by fax (please indicate urgency). Southern Health supports the use of the State Wide Referral Forms.

  • Name, age and date of birth
  • Address and contact telephone numbers
    Specific clinical problems requiring consultation
  • Preferred language, please indicate if an interpreter is needed
  • Copy of results of relevant investigations (Chest x-ray, CT scan of chest, lung function tests and blood gases, oxygen assessments performed within the previous 12 months)
  • List of current medications
