Do I need a referral?
You need a referral for all testing and consultations performed at Western Cardiology, with the exception of the HeartRisk scan (coronary calcium scan), which may be performed without one.
How long does my referral last?
If your referral is from a specialist doctor it will last 3 months. If your referral is from a GP it will generally last 12 months. Please note that if your referring doctor leaves the practice, you will need a new referral.
It is your responsibility to ensure you have a current referral. Please contact Western Cardiology on 9346 9300 prior to your appointment if you are unsure whether your referral is current.
Do you bulk bill?
Western Cardiology is a private medical practice and we do not offer a bulk billing service. Holders of valid pension or health care cards (Commonwealth Seniors Health Card excluded) are able to access pension rates. Please contact the accounts department on 9346 9316 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
