Outpatient Referrals

General referrals to the outpatient clinics must be mailed or faxed (08 6457 1555) directly to the Respiratory Medicine Outpatient Clinics prior to an appointment being made.  All appointments are made on an earliest available basis and patients are contacted via mail or phone.

Urgent referrals should be discussed with the appropriate Physician or Registrar and arrangements will be made to accommodate emergencies.

If possible, a named referral to the preferred consultant and sub-specialty clinic of choice would help to facilitate the appointment.
