We receive a significant number of hand written referrals that either have incorrect patient demographic information or are illegible leading to incorrect patient information being registered. This will include the following referrals:

  • Respiratory Diagnostic referral
  • Assessment of sleep disordered breathing
  • Home oxygen therapy
  • Breathlessness clinic
  • Echocardiography
