GP referrals

All standard medical and surgical outpatient referrals (not maternity or allied health) should be sent directly to WA Health's Central Referral Service (CRS):

The CRS covers GP/external referrals for a first outpatient appointment with a specialist at a clinic within a public metropolitan hospital. The CRS accepts referrals for a number of doctor-led specialities. For a full list of in and out of scope specialities, further information on referral access criteria (RAC) and how to submit a referral through CRS please refer to: Central Referral Service guide for referrers. Please note, referrals to specialties with RACs must meet the RAC to be accepted. Referrals which do not contain sufficient information to allow accurate triaging of the priority of the referral will be returned to the referrer.
