Launch of pre-referral guidelines for GPs

Departments across PCH have been working to produce a series of pre-referral guidelines to PCH for GPs and health professionals.

PCH accepts referrals from private consultants and general practitioners to the 50+ outpatient and inpatient services available for children and young people in Western Australia.

The new pre-referral guidelines aim to assist health professionals when to refer and the process of referring to PCH, providing information on:

  • the condition
  • pre-referral investigations
  • pre-referral management
  • when and how to refer
  • other guidelines
  • useful resources
  • contact for assistance.

You can find these guidelines under our new section on how to refer to PCH.

These guidelines join the referral process for other CAHS services including Community and Child Health, Mental Health and NETS WA.
