Referring Patients

Patients requiring emergency medical attention

Patients requiring emergency medical attention should be referred directly to the emergency department at SCGH. GPs are requested to provide relevant clinical information in a letter given to the patient. Sometimes, for complex patients, a supporting phone call may provide additional assistance for the receiving team. Contact can be made through SCGH switchboard on (08) 6457 3333 and ask to speak with the ED duty consultant, or by calling the Emergency Department Duty Consultant Admitting Line Phone: (08) 6457 4266 Fax: (08) 6457 2620

Patients requiring ‘immediate’ review (within seven days)

If you think the patient requires immediate review (within seven days) then you should contact the Registrar of the relevant specialty – if they agree the patient needs immediate review then you can send your referral direct to SCGH either by email to the Single Point of Referral Team SPoRT@health.wa.gov.au or by fax to (08) 6457 4159 unless otherwise directed by the Registrar.

Patients requiring Outpatient care
