Are you using eReferrals yet? 

In August 2022, Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) introduced the HealthLink Electronic Referral (eReferral) system. Since then, more than 9200 eReferrals have been processed and about 211 GP practices are using eReferrals. The benefits they have reported include:

  • Save time – no fax/ emailing is needed, patient and referrer information are pre-filled.
  • Secure health information - automatic checks ensure all necessary information is included
  • Comprehensive handover - pathology and imaging reports as well as consultation notes are easily attached
  • Improve communication between GPs and hospital services- GPs receive updates on the progress of the referral through the triage process

What's happening?

On 6 March, on additional 98 services(view list hereExternal Link)​​ will be added for eReferral, making 90% outpatient services across Royal North Shore, Ryde, Hornsby Ku-ring-gai, Mona Vale Hospitals and Primary and Community Health Services (see detailed services list in alphabet order below and view full list based on different facilities​ hereExternal Link​) are available for eReferrals. We are working towards having all our outpatient services to be available this year. 


How to use eReferrals?

HealthLink eReferrals (the same program as the Transport for NSW Fitness to Drive Assessment) are already embedded in compatible software like Best Practice, Medical Director (v3.16), Genie and Medtech Evolution. To use eReferrals, practices only need a FREE HealthLink subscription and HealthLink Smartforms activated. To organise, contact HealthLink on 1800 125 036 or [email protected] .
