The Alfred Referral Guidelines and Resources

The Alfred Specialist Consulting Clinics triage all outpatient referrals according to urgency as defined by four priority categories. Referral and Management Guidelines for General Practitioners provide information about:

  • when to refer,
  • what information including investigations are required in referrals,
  • and the priority for each condition listed.

The Alfred Outpatient Referral Form is also available to print and fax to the Outpatient Department on 9076 6938.

You will receive notification of the date of your patient's Outpatient appointment. If you have any concerns about the timing of your patient's appointment, or if the patient's condition changes prior to being seen in The Alfred Specialist Consulting Clinics, please contact the Outpatient Nurse Manager or unit registrar concerned through switchboard on 9076 2000.

The Alfred gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the Canterbury and District Health Board in New Zealand in developing these guidelines. They are intended as a guide only and have been developed in conjunction with the Heads of Unit of The Alfred. 

These referral guidelines do not intend to preclude a referral where the diagnosis is unclear, or if a second opinion for management options is requested.
