OPH Allied Health outpatient information regarding paediatric referrals
As of 25 March 2019, the physiotherapy and dietetics departments at Osborne Park Hospital stopped receiving outpatient referrals for children/adolescents under 16 years of age.
- Options for GPs requiring outpatient physiotherapy and dietetics for this cohort of patients in North Metro catchment are:
- Private physiotherapy or dietitian referral
- Referral via CRS to Perth Children’s Hospital to the appropriate specialty
- If the patient has a chronic disease, GP referral to a private physiotherapist or dietitian using a team care arrangement may be possible.
