Referrals made on behalf of the individual require their consent
It is appreciated if referrals contain as much information as possible to facilitate timely care and collaboration and is preferred if the GP or others in the team have been advised. Referrals will be accepted from practice software or in any written format.
For your convenience, you may complete our online referral form or you can download and print the referral form for emailing. The referral form is not mandatory but can be used if preferred.
Private clients who are self-referring are also welcome to use the referral forms if desired. Wound images are always appreciated and can be uploaded or attached to your referral form.
What happens next? Good Wound Care will inform you if additional information is required in order for the referral to be triaged or progressed.
When it comes to complex wound issues and oedemas, face to face visits are generally preferred for a better experience and quicker results. For less complex cases and routine reviews, telehealth consultations are often clinically suitable and we are happy to offer this service in the Geelong and Ballarat regions via our secure online platform.
Good Wound Care is pleased to provide a broader Telehealth service to clients who live in Victoria outside of our Geelong/Ballarat service boundary. This means more people have access to a Wound Consultant Nurse and Lymphoedema Practitioner where limited services exist or travelling far distances is not practical.
Good Wound Care’s telehealth functionality is designed to provide a simple to use web-based platform that is compliant with the Australian standards for online security and encryption. Telehealth consultations don’t require any special software or login. A link is sent to your email or phone to simply click to enter the appointment. Telehealth can also be attended via a phone call, with the assistance of photos of your wound.Contact us today to refer or discuss how our Telehealth services may benefit you (requires internet, webcam equipment, smart phone or tablet)
See our FAQ page for more info on Good Wound Care’s telehealth service.
