SLHD GP e-Referral Project

Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) is delighted to partner with HealthLink to enable electronic referrals directly from your GP medical records systems.

Using the HealthLink SmartForm platform GPs can efficiently send secure e-referrals to a wide and growing range of SLHD Ambulatory Care Services and clinics at Canterbury, Concord and Royal Prince Alfred Hospitals. And across 2022 more SLHD services will be accessible via HealthLink SmartForms embedded in Best Practice, Genie and Medical Director software or via the HealthLink Portal.

For more information on using HealthLink see the specific video tutorials below.
