How to submit a referral

  1. Use the correct electronic forms and templates to submit your referral. This will ensure the information is legible and complete.
  2. Ensure the minimum referral requirements, as outlined in the relevant referral guideline, are provided. Your referral may be returned if this information is omitted.
  3. Ensure your patient resides within the catchment area specified by the specialty and meets the eligibility requirements.
  4. Submit your completed form to the Queensland Children’s Hospital Referral Centre. Please note, that unless specifically required by the receiving service, sending your referral directly to a specialist area may result in processing delays.
  5. Send supporting reports and information to the Referral Centre.
