1800 ALFRED - your Emergency and Trauma Centre referral hotline

Did you know The Alfred has a dedicated 24-hour hotline for GPs to refer patients to the hospital's Emergency and Trauma Centre?

GPs wishing to refer a patient can phone 1800 ALFRED (1800 253 733) any time of the day or night.

The Admitting Officer will usually answer this hotline, but a "cascade" system is in place to ensure that calls to this number are always answered.

No written referral is required.
