Osborne Park Hospital update

OPH Allied Health outpatient information regarding paediatric referrals

As of 25 March 2019, the physiotherapy and dietetics departments at Osborne Park Hospital stopped receiving outpatient referrals for children/adolescents under 16 years of age.

  • Options for GPs requiring outpatient physiotherapy and dietetics for this cohort of patients in North Metro catchment are:
  • Private physiotherapy or dietitian referral
  • Referral via CRS to Perth Children’s Hospital to the appropriate specialty
  • If the patient has a chronic disease, GP referral to a private physiotherapist or dietitian using a team care arrangement may be possible.
