How to refer? Information for GPs:
Under Government mental health care programs, the first step is for the client’s GP to formulate a GP Mental Health Care Plan.
A written referral letter is required (as you would normally do in referring to a specialist) for a patient who can then contact me on 1300850839 or through email to arrange an appointment.
In return, I will provide GPs a written report providing information on:
Assessment carried out
