Referral Guidelines

 

Our COVID-19 pandemic response – changes to services

From July 1, Category 3 specialist outpatient referrals that were previously returned to general practitioners can now be re-referred to the Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service.

From August 1, WBHHS started to accept new Category 3 specialist outpatient referrals.

These outpatient referrals were temporarily returned to general practitioners due to the national suspension of non-urgent elective surgery, as part of Australia’s COVID-19 response. This meant all Category 3 elective surgeries and some Category 2 elective surgeries were temporarily postponed, and Category 3 outpatient referrals could not be accepted.

WBHHS continues to have one of best wait time records in Australia and, even with the disruptions that have been caused by COVID-19, we’ll continue to do our utmost to see patients within clinically recommended timeframes.
