Due to an incredibly high volume of requests for appointments currently, this practice is currently only accepting new referrals for patients with an eating disorder, aged 18 years or older, who are comfortable receiving telehealth services.
If you are in the above category, and would like to be placed on our WAITING LIST, this is our process:
Step 1: Complete the Appointment Request Form below (once you have familiarised yourself with relevant information on the website to ensure that the services we offer are an appropriate “fit” for your needs).
Step 2: Ask your GP to fax or email your referral to us at 03 9077 1115 (if you have a referral for medicare-subsidized services).
Step 3: We will then require you to complete a consent form, and provide billing and medicare card details.
Please note we cannot put you on our WAITING LIST until you have completed all three steps of the intake process.
Please ensure that you complete all required form fields, otherwise the form will not submit, and we will not receive your appointment request. NOTE WE REQUIRE COMPLETION OF THE APPOINTMENT REQUEST FORM BELOW REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOUR GP HAS, OR INTENDS TO SEND THROUGH A REFERRAL.
Note: this practice does not offer bulk billing. We are able to offer partial Medicare rebates to anyone with a Mental Health Care Plan or an Eating Disorders Plan. All out-of-pocket costs associated with Medicare-subsidised services count toward the Medicare Safety Net. If you would like up-to-date information on fees and rebates prior to submitting an appointment request, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
