A referral can be made by any individual (including a self-referral) and by any service.
Doutta Galla's preferred method of referral is electronically, via the Connecting Care website
Our central intake team will receive referrals sent via Connecting Care. The exact referral method for each service is shown within the Connecting Care website. The Connecting Care website requires the creation of a user name and to log in. The website also offers a user guide for first time users.
Referrals can be sent via fax (9374 2866). Service Coordination Tool Templates/profiles (SCTT) are used to make a referral. All faxed referrals should include:
Confidential referral coversheet
Consent to share information
Summary and referral information
Note: With client consent, please include other relevant information, such as general or specialist medical correspondence, care plans, and risk plans.
