Consultation fees are payable at the conclusion of the appointment. The Medicare rebate will be processed immediately and funds are usually deposited by Medicare into your nominated account within one to two business days.
BEFORE MAKING AN APPPOINTMENT:
Your child will need a referral letter from your GP or specialist to see a Paediatrician.
GP referrals are generally valid for 12 months only. After 12 months, you will need your GP to make a new referral. You will also need a new GP referral letter if you are attending for a new problem.
Note: referrals provided by a specialist are only valid for 3 months.
WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT:
Referral letter from your GP if you have not already emailed or faxed it through
Your child’s Health and Development Record (blue or green book)
Any previous assessments or reports for your child
(e.g. X-rays, blood tests, speech / psychology / cognitive assessments, school reports)
