Most patients see clinical psychologists via a mental health treatment plan. These treatment plans allow patients to access 10 sessions per calendar year that attract a Medicare rebate. These referrals can be obtained from General Practitioners, psychiatrists and paediatricians.
Clinical psychologists are specialists at the assessment, diagnosis and non-pharmacological intervention of mental health conditions. Using a range of techniques that look at the way people think and behave, psychologists help people by teaching techniques via a range of therapies.
GPs can refer to psychiatrists for assessment, diagnosis and ongoing management.
Alternatively, GPs can refer on a ‘291’, an item number that Medicare include in the MBS to facilitate a one off assessment and management plan that enables GP follow up.
Our psychiatrists have admitting rights at both the Royal Hobart Hospital and St Helen’s Private Hospital for patients.
Our paediatricians see children and adolescents for all child health and behavioural needs but have a special interest in behavioural, developmental and mental health conditions that affect children and adolescents.
These conditions may include pervasive developmental disorder, autism spectrum disorder, eating disorders, learning disabilities and general health conditions.
Our paediatricians work collaboratively with our psychologists to provide support to both children, adolescents and their parents.
