You must have a written referral from a GP, Specialist or Nurse Practitioner to see a specialist at Care Gynaecology. Your referral will allow you to claim a rebate from Medicare. No rebate is claimable through your private health fund. A referral from a GP or Nurse Practitioner is valid for 12 months and a referral from a Specialist will only remain valid for 3 months (both taken from the date of your initial consultation at Care Gynaecology).
An appointment cannot be made until we have received your referral. All referrals are triaged to ensure urgent cases are seen promptly and to ascertain if any pathology or tests are required prior to attending for an appointment. Once your referral has been triaged, our staff will contact you and arrange a suitable time and date. A written confirmation of your appointment will be forwarded to you, together with information setting out our consultation fees and Medicare rebates.
