What happens after a referral has been made?

We review and prioritise all new referrals daily to ensure patients are seen in a timely manner by the most relevant profession/s.

Depending on the information on the referral form, we may request further details about current medical/rehabilitation needs. Please inform us if you are not happy with this.

Any information we keep about you is treated in the strictest of confidence.

What to expect

An appointment will be made for an initial assessment.

This appointment will last approximately 45 minutes and will allow us to identify your needs and the professions that would be best suited to address these.

For some patients, with complex needs, the assessment period can be longer and can take several appointments.

At your assessment you will be asked about your past medical history and your current problems.

Your mobility, balance and transfers may be assessed. You also may be asked to complete some assessments such as questionnaires or checklists.

You will have the chance to ask any questions or discuss any concerns you might have at any point in the assessment process.

Following your assessment we will discuss options of support and rehabilitation that may help you achieve your full potential.

We will also create some short and / or long term goals that are important to you.

During treatment your progress will be reviewed regularly up until discharge.
