Referral

What is a referral?

A referral is a written request from one health professional to another health professional or health service, asking them to diagnose or treat you for a particular condition.

What does a referral do?

A referral provides information about you and your condition so that:

  • the person you are being referred to does not have to ask so many questions
  • they are aware of relevant background information
  • they know exactly what they are being asked to do

A referral is also used to indicate that the consultation or test you are being referred for is clinically important. In some instances the specialist may bill Medicare on your behalf if you agree they can do so.
