What to expect?
You will be allocated a primary nurse, but from time to time you will see other nurses. If you are able to attend a clinic you will be requested to do so. The clinics operate an appointment system to ensure you are not kept waiting. If you aren’t able to attend a clinic the nurse will contact you following referral to arrange a visiting time at your home.

Referral Expectations

Referrals can be sent by appropriate health professionals through the e-Referral system.
