What happens after I refer a patient?

During the initial call, health coaches ask a number of screening and assessment questions about;

  • Any recent hospitalisations,
  • Chronic conditions,
  • Illnesses relating to the heart, lungs or brain,
  • Physical conditions, including pregnancy,
  • Mental health considerations and
  • Special dietary considerations.

If participants are self referred and these questions highlight any potential risks, the participant is referred to their GP to obtain medical clearance prior to taking part in the program. In this instance, the GP may be asked to determine whether their patient is:

  • Suitable for the Service.
  • Suitable for the Service with some considerations.
  • Not suitable for the Service.

Where patients are referred by their GP, the safety assessment becomes part of the referral.
