What to bring:
Your GP's referral letter
For all new patients 0-15 years of age we will require a new referral, issued by your local doctor. For more info click here
Medical HistoryPlease always bring your child's health care record and all previous medical records to the appointment. All previous assessments, hearing and eye assessments and your child's school or Kindergarten reports are essential in particular for developmental/behavioural referrals.
- Medicare cardPlease ensure your newborn is registered with Medicare and that you have your card ready on arrival. For babies without a medicare card we cannot claim the medicare rebate. You can register Here.
Where are we:
For your first appointment we recommend that we get input from both parents, if possible. During COVID it is not possible for both parents to attend our practice. However, we can link in with the other caregiver via telehealth or phone. This is particularly important for children with behavioural and developmental concerns.
GP referrals are generally valid for 12 months. Referrals by a specialist such as your obstetrician are valid for 3 months only. Please email your referral to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax it to us at (03) 9781 2623. We do not accept indefinite referrals.
We will ask you to provide us with relevant information about your child including parenting or intervention orders, if relevant. You will provide your contact details, sign our privacy statement, and fill out a questionnaire which you can find here.
