Metro South Health is responsible for providing public health services to the people who reside within its boundaries. Due to high demand it is not possible to accept referrals from outside this catchment area. Special consideration is made for patients requiring tertiary care or services that are not provided by their local Hospital and Health Service. If your patient lives outside the Metro South Health area and you wish to refer them to one of our services, inclusion of information regarding their particular medical and social factors will assist with the triaging of your referral.
