Referrals for cardiac assessment and review can be made to our Cardiac Clinics. Referrals should be made by a medical practitioner with full provider number, address and contact details, and a written or faxed referral is required before patients can be seen. These referrals should be to the specific cardiologist from our team in whose clinic the patient has been booked - our staff would be happy to provide that information.
For routine, new cases the current waiting list may be long as priority is given to the youngest or most unwell patients. If you feel early review is needed we would suggest making direct contact with one of the cardiologists in our team through the Heart Centre (contact us) or their Private Rooms. Alternative options for elective cases would be to seek initial triage through a paediatrician.
Emergency cases should be directed to the Emergency Department where they will be evaluated and, if need be, a cardiologist called.
