A referral letter is required to see an OSV surgeon to ensure that you are paid your Medicare rebate entitlement. Your General Practitioner (GP) or another medical specialist is able to provide you with such a referral. GP referrals are usually valid for 12 months from the date of attendance and specialist referrals are valid for 3 months.
Cancellation lists are also available for patients seeking an earlier appointment than is available.
Urgent appointments are available for injuries requiring immediate medical attention. They are usually requested by your referring doctor and prioritized.
