COVID-19 RESPONSE REGARDING TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Dear families and parents,
As COVID-19 now encompasses our daily lives, we are committed to providing and maintaining a working environment which minimizes risks to the health of all and transmission to the community.
Taking into consideration the advice from the Australian Government we have implemented several preventive measures and protocols designed to simultaneously limit the risk of spreading the virus and ensuring we can continue to support our patients appropriately.
Therefore, we now provide to the families and our patients the option to move from face to face consulting to a telehealth/telephone consultation platform for all our clinics and clinicians.
This will allow us to continue providing care to your child’s needs whilst reducing the risk of spreading the virus.
We are committed to helping patients reduce their financial load during this difficult time and as such we have implemented new discounted consultation rates and made available bulk-billing for Telehealth services provided to eligible patients.
We deeply encourage patients to contact us for the most up to date information as the situation is constantly evolving.
For further information or appointments please contact reception on (03) 8525 2377 or at email@example.com.

Book an Appointment
You will find many answers to common questions about our clinic. Please take your time to review some of the questions here that may apply to you.
In some cases yes, you would need to have a doctors referral to make an appointment. But, please complete the online appointment form and someone from our office will call you to talk with about your needs.
A referral provides information about you and your condition so that our specialists:
- are aware of relevant background information
- know exactly what they are being asked to do
A referral is also used to indicate that the consultation or test you’re being referred for is clinically important, and that Medicare should cover at least part of the cost.
Most referrals from general practitioners to specialists are limited to 12 months. Referrals from specialists and consultant physicians to other specialists are limited to 3 months unless the patient is admitted to hospital.
Ask your general practitioner or doctor to write you a referral.
You can choose the individual specialist you want to be referred to or ask your doctor to recommend someone. The doctor can address it to a particular person or make a general referral without using the name of the specialist (for example, addressing it to “Dear psychiatrist”.)
If your regular GP knows you well, they might be happy to provide a referral without seeing you in person.
But in general, it is better to make an appointment to get a referral. That way, you are more likely to have the referral contain the sort of information you want it to.
Our specialists will still be able to see you however Medicare will not cover any costs if you visit without a referral.
Referrals to our allied health professionals are not necessary but as mentioned earlier, you will not be able to attract a Medicare rebate.
Referrals for allied health professionals differ from specialists and depending on the service you are after you may need to acquire a “Mental Health Plan” or “Care Plan” from your GP. Please contact one of our friendly staff to enquire about the specific referral you will need to see your required allied health professional.
