Hobart Speech Pathology Referalls

Self-referrals are welcome. In most cases you won’t require a referral from your Doctor to book a speech pathology appointment, but relevant health information from your GP or Specialist will be helpful in tailoring advice to best suit your needs.

If you are eligible to claim a rebate through Medicare, or will be funded by a 3rd-party such as DVA, MAIB or Workers’ Compensation, you will require a medical referral.

If you would like to book an appointment or have an enquiry, please phone or email.
