Specialist Outpatient Referrals (Gold Coast Health)

Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC)

A number of referral templates have been updated for Gold Coast general practices, which feature Clinical Prioritisation Criteria (CPC), to help streamline and standardise referrals to Gold Coast Health.

Not all templates currently have CPC criteria, however we will continue to update our templates as CPC criteria becomes available for additional specialty areas. 
 
This is a joint initiative between Gold Coast Primary Health Network and Gold Coast Health to accelerate referral decision making, improve outpatient waiting lists and ultimately patient care.

The templates have been extensively tested by general practices involved in a pilot project, and are now available to complete in a range of medical software.

Any old referral templates that have not as yet been updated to meet CPC guidelines have been incorporated in the links below. Dates have been included to easily identify the old templates from the new. The old templates will be replaced over time as new ones are developed.

Gold Coast Health requests that all clinicians use the CPC templates as they are clinical decision-support tools that help to standardise referrals. This includes:
 
  • General Practitioners
  • All clinicians who refer patients to Queensland public hospital systems
If you have any questions, please email: GCGPLU@health.qld.gov.au
   

Referral Template Installation Guide

The Referral Template Installation Guide provides useful information about how to download referral templates. There are also instructions on how to install templates when using Medical Director, Best Practice, GP Complete, ZedMed and Genie.

If importing templates into your clinical software DO NOT OPEN them outside of your medical software as this will corrupt the medical software coding. Word and PDF files cannot be imported into medical software.
