Due to the possibility of clinic staff and/or doctors testing positive, or being a close contact of someone testing positive for COVID-19, your appointment may be cancelled at short notice. Every endeavour will be made to re-appoint in a timely manner and your patience will be appreciated.
The Perron Institute Clinics are a bulk billing service. This means you are required to have a current GP or specialist in order to attend the clinic. We do not accept indefinite/ongoing referrals and we ask you to provide a new referral every 12 months from your GP or after 3 months if the initial referral was from a specialist.
A referral can be forwarded to the Central Referral service by your GP (they are aware of this process) where it will be triaged to the Perron Clinics if appropriate.
Referrals can also be faxed to the clinic 6457 0281 or emailed to email@example.com
On receipt your referral will be reviewed and triaged for suitability and acceptance. Your GP will be notified if the referral is not suitable for the sub-specialty clinics. You will also be notified of the outcome of the triage process. This process can take up to 10 working days depending on the urgency of the referral.
Once accepted, an appointment will be posted to you. You cannot make a new patient appointment over the phone.
