In Australia, a referral is not required to be able to see an allied health professional such as a speech pathologist, although it is often helpful for you to bring as much information about your health history as well as any specific medical or surgical details that relate to your reason for seeing a speech pathologist.
There are a few exceptions to this, where you will need to obtain a referral from your GP prior to attending our clinic.
