Fax referral to us

We accept GP and specialist referrals to this service.

All referrals are triaged by the service according to clinical urgency. Patients who are unstable and requiring immediate assessment should be sent directly to the Emergency Department.

To refer your patient, follow the outpatient service information, triage and referral guidelines, complete and fax a referral to us. For urgent referrals, also contact the registrar on call to discuss the case. Our registrars are on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

To ensure appropriate and timely triage, include all demographic and clinical details as well as relevant investigation results.

If you are concerned about any delay of the appointment or if there is any deterioration in your patient’s condition, contact the Registrar on-call via the hospitals' switchboard telephone: (08) 7074 0000 (RAH) or (08) 8222 6000 (TQEH).

To make a referral:

Fax: (08) 7074 6247
Telephone: (08) 7117 3004

Questions requiring immediate attention call the Cardiology Registrar via the RAH Switchboard on 7074 0000.

Post discharge guidelines and information

Patients whose cardiology condition has stabilised or resolved and for whom no further appointment has been made will be formally discharged. If cardiology assessment is required again, a new referral, explaining the reason should be faxed to us.

As only the GP referral is available to the specialist at the time of triage, simply requesting review without providing information about the problem is insufficient and will lead to significant delays in assessing the referral which will most likely be returned to you for more information.
