UPDATE: Management of Category 3 Referrals
From 1 July 2020, Category 3 referrals that were returned to General Practitioners between 22 March 2020 and 30 June 2020, where Specialist consultation is still required, can be re-referred. General Practitioners are invited to re-refer patients to the relevant Metro North HHS hospital. All re-referred Category 3 referrals received in July will be dated 1 July 2020, irrespective of the date they are received.
Any new referrals assigned Category 3 received and accepted from 1 July 2020 to 31 July 2020 are unlikely to be processed prior to 1 August 2020.
Category 1 and 2 referrals will continue to be progressed as normal.
Date: Wednesday 28 October 2020
