Referring Patients

Patients requiring emergency medical attention

As Osborne Park Hospital does not have an emergency department, patients requiring emergency medical attention should be referred directly to the emergency department at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (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 or by fax to (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 OPH either by email to the Single Point of Referral Team or by fax to (08) 6457 4159 unless otherwise directed by the Registrar.

Patients requiring Outpatient care

For more information on referral forms and referring patients to OPH for outpatient care, please go to the outpatients page.
