REFERRALS

CLIENT BROCHURE

INTAKE UPDATE (October 2021)

Due to complexity and demands, we are reviewing the scope of services:

- no longer accepting referrals for clients with mental health diagnoses

- all "potential to drive" assessment services are on pause until 2022

Call Zeta our Practice Manager to book an appointment - in the meantime, gather your paperwork (below). Once you have all your paperwork, please send ALL of the documents to Zeta our Practice Manager on admin@drivingwell.com.au, to confirm your booking.

Referrals must include:

1) Referral form and clearance to undergo OT driving assessment signed by GP/specialist

2) QLD Transport medical certificate 

--> refer to the Guide: "How to complete a Medical Certificate" 

--> Client MUST take this medical certificate to QLD Transport office for processing.

3) Vision Assessment Form 

--> older drivers, clients with neurological conditions/injuries MUST see the Optometrist / Ophthalmologist to complete this form. Otherwise GP can do visual acuity and visual fields on the QLD Transport Medical Certificate.

4) NDIS Plan:

- Copy of NDIS plan

- full name

- who is the decision maker for the client

- DOB

- address

- phone number

- email address

- purpose of assessment

- client's medical condition/disability

- current licence class (none vs learner vs open)

- basic overview of current level of function

5) Hospital discharge summary or any reports previously completed by community / paediatric Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Neurologist, Psychiatrists, Physiotherapist. 

6) Photograph of driver's licence.

Withholding information can result in an inaccurate assessment and incorrect recommendations - which could lead to significant risks for the client and the community.

This is a big process, so well done!
