Refer your patient

Connecting Care to Country

GPs and health providers can refer patients to us for general cardiac and respiratory outpatient & Outreach services.

Referring a patient

Your patient must have a Medicare card or be listed on their parent’s card.

They must also be either:

  • a new patient Over 16
  • an existing patient Over 16.

They must live in the Queensland catchment area.

You can still make a referral if:

  • your patient’s local hospital or health service doesn’t have the services or treatments they need.

Referral guidelines

HealthPathways is a hospital referral guideline that includes the Queensland Government Clinical Prioritisation Criteria. It provides clinical assessment, management and referral advice for health providers.

You can find referral criteria and contact information for your local HHS HealthPathways on the Queensland Government website.
