Our GP Liaison team helps GPs and other health professionals to navigate and refer patients to services at the Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH). We work to improve communication between the hospital and primary care

Located at the RMH Royal Park, the GP Liaison service works across all areas of the RMH to improve communication and collaboration with community based providers.

Some of the activities we are involved in include:

  • Improving communication with GPs through Specialist Clinics (Outpatients) letters, discharge summaries and promoting the use of the Parkville Connect portal for GPs to view relevant information in their patient’s electronic medical record
  • Advocating for the needs of general practice when planning new services or programs and ensuring that new initiatives are communicated to general practice in a timely manner
  • Assisting GPs and other community based primary care services to access appropriate services (inpatient, specialist clinics, emergency) for their patients by responding to phone and email enquiries
Referrals

Some of our services and clinics have a preferred form or process for GPs to use when referring a patient. You can find specific referrals information on each of our service pages.
