Dietitians assess people’s nutritional status and provide food and nutrition information to improve health and wellbeing. Dietitians provide information about modified diets to manage conditions such as malnutrition, dysphagia, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, food allergies and intolerances.

How to make a referral

A GP, hospital or health practitioner referral will contain a request for service, past and current medical history and medication, any contraindications for treatment and alerts, and any relevant radiology and pathology reports. To help to prioritise referrals, it is important to include as much information as possible.

It is preferred that agency/service referrals are received via www.connectingcare.com

Referrals can also be made by contacting one of our Client Services and Scheduling Officers on 1300 026 229, emailing cchsintake.primaryhealth@cobaw.org.au  or click here to complete the Contact Us form.
