Conditions not seen at West Moreton Health

The following conditions are treated at other health services dependent on patients location, please refer to the nearest hospital and health service.

+ Notes

  • Please note that where appropriate and where available, the referral may be streamed to an associated public allied health and/or nursing service. Access to some specific services may include initial assessment and management by associated public allied health and/or nursing, which may either facilitate or negate the need to see the public medical specialist.
  • A change in patient circumstance (such as condition deteriorating, or becoming pregnant) may affect the urgency categorisation and should be communicated as soon as possible.
  • Please indicate in the referral if the patient is unable to access mandatory tests or investigations as they incur a cost or are unavailable locally.

Out of catchment

West Moreton Health is responsible for providing a public health service to people who reside within its catchment area. To appropriately manage demand for service we do not accept referrals from outside this catchment area. If your patient does live outside the West Moreton Health area and it is deemed socially or clinically necessary for their care to be received in the West Moreton Health Service, inclusion of information regarding their particular medical and/or 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)
