Private patients can be referred to Hospice by completing and submitting the PalCare referral form. Public patients will need to be referred to Great Southern Palliative Care Service.
The Hospice has many of the local GPs credentialed to admit to the hospice. Most take sole care of their patients in the hospice with a few sharing the responsibility with others within their practice or with GP registrars. This means that patients receive a high level on continuity with their medical care and are afforded the opportunity to have care from a medical practitioner with whom they have a long standing relationship.
The Hospice provides an environment where GPs with appropriate qualifications and experience can deliver safe, high quality palliative care services. The credentialing system supports this in a local process for reviewing the credentialing and scope of clinical practice applications for all doctors seeking to provide services within the Hospice. The Hospice Board of Management delegates the responsibility for the management of the processes of credentialing and scoping clinical practice to the Medical Credentialing Committee (MCC).
