Refer your patient
Referral guidelines are changing across Metro North. Make sure you’re familiar with the latest criteria when referring patients.
Our COVID-19 pandemic response – changes to services
Based on information from the Director General, Queensland hospital and health services can no longer accept new non-urgent (category 3) referrals (from all sources) as identified by the Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC) or clinical judgement if CPC is not available. Patients are to remain under the care of the primary care physician until further notice.
Any new category 3 referrals received will be returned to primary care for management and ongoing care of the patient. If your patient’s condition deteriorates, please provide an updated referral.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this and appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
