Broken Hill Specialist Referral Information

Changes to where you can access Specialist Referral Information from 1 July 2024

WNSW PHN is investing in better ways to support General Practice so that our communities receive the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

A new statewide digital referral management solution is being introduced to improve the referral experience of patients, referrers and clinicians in outpatient services.

Far West Local Health District (FWLHD) has partnered with eHealth NSW and HealthLink to enable electronic referrals (eReferrals) to be sent to select FWLHD outpatient services. An eReferral is an electronic document that can be sent electronically from one health care service to another, designed to be more sustainable than the current process of faxing, emailing or posting referrals.

HealthLink eReferrals will allow primary care general practitioners, specialists, nurses and allied health professionals to efficiently send secure eReferrals to clinics across the Far West Local Health District. They are designed to enhance the triage and health management of a patient’s journey, improve patient safety, and reduce specialist outpatient wait times.
