For your convenience you can now order repeat specialist referrals or copies of lost referrals online.
Online specialist referral requests are suitable if:
You have had a previous referral to your specialist issued to you by Double Bay Doctors in the last 18 months and it is due for renewal; or,
You have lost your referral and require a new copy of your referral.
Referrals to specialists that you have not previously been referred to, or renewed mental health care plans, are not suitable for this service.
Please allow 3 business days for your doctor to review and process your request.
If you require your repeat referral urgently, please book a telehealth or in-person consultation with your doctor.
A $25.00 fee applies for this service.
How it works
When you request a referral through this service, your Double Bay Doctors GP will review your medical history and confirm your eligibility for a repeat referral.
You will receive a secure SMS update to confirm if your request has been approved within 3 business days.
When you complete your request, you can choose how you would like to receive your referral: by email; collection from Double Bay Doctors; or have your referral faxed to your specialist.
To lodge your request you will be required to provide your credit card details. Your credit card will only be charged if your request approved.
If your request is not approved, you will receive an SMS update requesting you to make an appointment.
If you require an amendment to the addressee on your referral, for instance if the specialist you were referred to has a long waiting list, please send a request for an amendment to your referral to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the details of the new specialist you would like to be referred to, if known.
There is no fee to amend the addressee of a referral.
