How to Refer a Patient
Our individual psychological treatment services are bulk billed through Medicare’s Better Access to Psychiatrists, Psychologists and General Practitioners initiative. A minimum of 10 free consultations with one of our specialist perinatal mental health clinicians are available to patients within a calendar year.
In order to access our service, patients must have a GP referral and Mental Health Care Plan in place.
Referrals and Mental Health Care Plans should be made out to The Clinician at Gidget House and sent by email to email@example.com or faxed to 02 9460 1551.
Due to the high volume of referrals we receive, we ask that all patients (or their referrers) call our central booking number on 1300 851 758 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register with us, even if their referral and mental health care plan has already been sent.
Patients are able to access our services face to face in NSW, VIC and QLD, or via telehealth through our nationwide Start Talking program. The addresses of all our Gidget House locations are available here, and further patient-friendly information about our services is available through our Gidget House or Start Talking brochures.
