Everything you need to make a referral

GPs and other Health Professionals can target those in the community who need the Get Healthy Service the most, both in terms of a client's socio-demographic profile as well as their risk factor profile.

Referral Forms - General Practitioners

You are encouraged to refer any patient you think would benefit from the Get Healthy Service. Simply complete a relevant General Practitioner Referral Form available below and email or fax it to the Get Healthy Service (the contact details are on the form).

Medical Director and Best Practice templates of these referral forms have been developed and may be found on your medical software.

With the participant’s permission, you will be kept informed of your patient’s progress with the provision of reports from the Service at three and six months.

Medical Clearance - General Practitioners

Some participants will require a medical clearance to participate in the service. As a General Practitioner, you may be asked to determine whether your patient is:

  • Suitable for the Service.
  • Suitable for the Service with some considerations.
  • Not suitable for the Service.

A medical clearance form will be provided to you if it is required.

REFERRAL FORMS – HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

A referral form for the Get Healthy Service is also available for Health Professionals. Simply complete the form available below and send it to us by fax or email (see contact details on form).

These forms do not include the medical clearance process. Medical clearance may still be required from a General Practitioner.

    "It was very good having that person, it gave you some motivation and justification because if I hadn't done the right thing I was honest and told her, she didn't judge."
