Referral templates and guides

Downloadable Electronic Templates

Brisbane South PHN is committed to improving the coordination of services and the streamlining of processes between the primary and secondary care sectors in our region and has been actively supported Primary Care through the development of referral templates.

In the section below you will find referral templates for several conditions, and to the major specialists outpatient departments for Medical Director and Best Practice.  For your ease of access there are links to the Metro South Health GP Referral Criteria, Mater Hospital Quick Referrals and the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital (Children’s Health Queensland). These resources are provided to assist practices in the development of quality referrals, and to allow for appropriate triage and categorisation of patients.

On this page General Practices can download referral templates for medical practice software. Please ensure you read the importing instructions for Best Practice (click here) or Medical Director (click here) prior to installing these templates. If you need any assistance with these templates, please contact your Area Account Manager. If importing templates into your clinical software DO NOT open them outside of your medical software as this will corrupt the medical software coding. Word and PDF files cannot be imported into medical software.
