Refer your patient
Fax referral to us
We accept GP and specialist referrals to this service.
All referrals are triaged by the service according to clinical urgency. Patients who are unstable and requiring immediate assessment should be sent directly to the Emergency and Trauma Centre.
To refer your patient, follow the outpatient service information, triage and referral guidelines, complete and fax a referral to us. For urgent referrals, also contact the registrar to discuss the case.
To ensure appropriate and timely triage, include all demographic and clinical details as well as relevant investigation results.
If you are concerned about any delay of the appointment or if there is any deterioration in your patient’s condition, contact the Registrar/Fellow on-call via the hospital's switchboard telephone: (08) 7074 0000 (RAH) or (08) 8222 6000 (TQEH).

Alternate care options
Not all patients with urology problems can be offered appointments in the CALHN urology clinics. In most cases the key to appropriate management is a detailed history and examination. Options for obtaining further information regarding various urology conditions and to provide guidance for assessment, investigations and management can be accessed on health pathways.
Health Pathways South Australia is an online portal designed to be used by general practice at the point of care to guide best practice assessment, management and referral of common clinical conditions.
Post discharge guidelines and information
Patients whose urology condition has stabilised or resolved and for whom no further appointment has been made will be formally discharged. If an assessment is required again, a new referral, preferably a named referral (see consultant list below) should be faxed through.
