How do I access the program?

To be admitted to our programs, you will need to ask your General Practitioner for a referral to a Geelong Clinic accredited Psychiatrist. The Psychiatrist will then refer you to the Day Program.

Your GP can address your referral to: ‘Dear Doctor…’ or a Psychiatrist of your choice.

The referral should be faxed by your GP to 03 5248 4852.

Once cover or funding is checked and confirmed, the program coordinator will coordinate next steps with you.
