+ Additional referral information

  • Willingness to have surgery (where surgery is a likely intervention)
  • Choice to be treated as a public or private patient

Out of Catchment

West Moreton Health is responsible for providing public health service to people who reside within its boundaries. Due to high demand it is not possible to accept referrals from outside this catchment area. If your patient lives outside the West Moreton Health area and you wish to refer them to one of our services, inclusion of information regarding their particular medical and social factors will assist with the triaging of your referral.

From July 1 2017 Commonwealth growth funding has been capped. This changes how WMHS can fund its growth as an organisation. Named referrals from GP’s help support hospital funding through a Medicare bulk-billing arrangement. The new federal funding model incorporates specific pricing for patients which removes concerns around ‘double dipping'. This benefits hospital and patient services.


Patient must bring

  • Medicare card
  • Any concession cards (e.g. Pension, Health Care, DVA, PBS Safety Net, ADF, etc)
