- GP referral
- Medical referral
All Dermatology referrals must include a consultant being referred to in RNSH outpatients. If unsure, please address to Professor Gayle Fischer and Associates.
All referrals must include patients details including:
- telephone number,
- the reason for referral
- clinical findings
- treatment to date
- provisional diagnosis
- the impact on the patient
- any significant medical history, medications and relevant social information
Please indicate preferred language if an interpreter is required.
Please attach results of any investigations to the referral and ensure the patient brings hard copies to their appointment. This will help avoid unnecessary duplication of tests, additional appointments and delay.
Out of area referrals provided by specialists are accepted for some clinics. The service or problem needs to be documented on referral. Referrals with insufficient information will be returned until further information is provided to the clinic.
