Please read the following instructions carefully to avoid any delays in processing your appointment request.
Before making an appointment:
You will need a referral letter from your GP to see a specialist at Hawthorn East Specialist Centre.
– GP referrals are generally valid for 12 months only. After 12 months, you will need your GP to make a new referral.
– Referrals provided by a specialist are only valid for 3 months.
Although a GP referral is not essential for most allied health services (eg. physiotherapist, psychologist) some of these services can be claimed through Medicare with a GP referral. lf you are not sure please check with your GP.
