All patients require a GP or specialist referral to book an appointment in the Menopause Hub.

Once you have obtained a referral from your GP or specialist please forward it as an attachment to our email address or fax (02) 9382 6246.

Please note, when we receive your referral there is a booking process which can take 7-10 working days to complete. We will then send an appointment letter to your postal address, please allow 2-3 weeks between sending your referral and receiving your appointment letter. If after 3 weeks you have not received any correspondence from us, or if the appointment we have allocated doesn’t suit you, please feel free to call on (02) 9382 6248.

The Menopause Hub is an extremely busy service. Please be aware wait times for an appointment can range between 4 weeks – 7 months depending on your specific needs. We appreciate your patience whilst waiting for an appointment.
