Getting an appointment

To access our specialist services and clinics, you will need a referral from your doctor/GP or nearest Family Planning Clinic. Your GP plays an important part in the continuity of your health care and can determine when a referral needs to be made for further assessment of your condition, or if the signs and symptoms are not easily managed in the primary care setting. 

Once a referral is made, it is assessed by one of our Senior Medical Officers specialising in gynaecology. Most referrals are triaged within a week. 

Your referral may be declined - your GP will discuss this with you if that happens.

If the referral is accepted, you will be placed on the waiting list and prioritised accordingly. You will receive notification that you have been waitlisted. A response will be sent to your GP if further information or tests are required.

We aim to send you an appointment within four months. If you have not had an appointment within six months, please see your GP again for assessment until the appointment is sent to you.

Cancelling/rescheduling an appointment

If you have been sent an appointment and are unable to attend, please call the number listed on your letter to have your appointment rescheduled.

If you no longer require an appointment, or have sought assessment privately, please contact us so you can be taken off the clinic waiting list and another woman can have the appointment.
