Access and Referrals

Cairns Private Hospital supports the need for early referral to Rehabilitation Services (note, no referral is required for outpatient services).

For inpatient rehabilitation, we accept referrals from other hospitals, medical specialists and General Practitioners.

Day Rehabilitation is available to eligible privately insured and veteran patients from within Cairns Private Hospital, other hospitals, and directly from the community.

To attend a Day Rehabilitation Program, patients require a referral from a GP or specialist to one of Cairns Private Hospital's Rehabilitation Specialists or Geriatrician.

Once we have received your referral, we will contact you to organise an initial assessment with our Specialist. It will be decided at this assessment what therapies may be most beneficial to you.

Your schedule of appointments will be then co-ordinated with you by our Day Program Co-ordinator.

A Discharge Summary including any follow-up recommendations will be sent to your GP on completion of a day program.
