In order for us to perform a comprehensive assessment and put together a comprehensive treatment plan, we need to know everything we can about you. That is why we require a referral letter prior to seeing you.
Your referrer needs to provide a detailed referral letter, outlining the history of your condition, treatment provided to date, along with full details of your past medical history and current medication. As you can imagine, all of this may influence your assessment and treatment.
Another reason we require a referral letter is that ACC and some private health insurers require it before they will fund your consultation.
The more we know about you, the more we can help.
