When it comes to hand injuries, the general rule is the earlier the intervention, the better the outcome.
For this reason, we prefer early referrals. This enables us to to make appointments and commence treatment within a timeframe appropriate to the nature of the injury or condition.
It is always helpful to receive written referrals at the time the appointment is made. This makes it easier for us to determine whether patients require urgent appointments. You can fax or email your written referrals to us, and if you include a patient contact number, we'll contact them ourselves to arrange their appointment.
