Bendigo Health Referral Centre is an access and referral management service which provides referrers, consumers and service providers with a single point of entry to community services.

What we do

Referral Centre provides consultancy and advice to health professionals regarding mandatory service criteria, eligibility and regional boundaries. Referral Centre is also a resource for community members.

Referral Centre acts as an initial point of triage for community services to prioritise referrals, filter duplicate and ineligible referrals, acknowledge receipt of referral to referrers and inform services of other Bendigo Health service involvement.

How to refer your patient

Referrals can be generated through: www.connectingcare.com  

You can provide information using the Bendigo Health SCTT form available to download below, your personal letterhead or a computer generated form, for example Medical Director or Best Practice.  Information about the patient’s condition, functional ability, the impact their condition is having on their normal daily activities or some indication of the expected outcomes would help us in determining how best we can meet the needs of your patient.
