Instructions for patients

 

General

 

  • Please email (info@dev-ishc.nicer8.com) or fax (02 9542 8388) your referral as early as possible after your appointment is made, or ask your referring doctor to do so. This will allow us to ensure your referral is appropriate and seen in a timely manner.
