General Practice referral

Diabetes Tasmania welcomes referrals from General Practice anywhere in the state.  

Our clinical, COACH and group programs are FREE for people with, or at risk of diabetes. Individual consultations are offered via telehealth, video as well as face to face.  One of our health professionals will contact the patient and talk to them about how we can help. 

With the patient’s consent, please complete the referral form (links to Primary Health Tasmania website) and attach the relevant medical history.  

Instructions for downloading our referral template onto your Best Practice or Medical Director practice software are available on the PHT website (a pdf version of the referral form is also available).

NOTE: Referrals can be sent to us via Healthlink (EDI address: diabetas); fax; email or post. Please select the referral form relevant to your profession.
