Support while you wait for an assessment

Help available from health services while you wait for an assessment.

When a referral is made to a health service, there will be a wait before the service decides whether to make an assessment. There will be another wait before the assessment can take place.

You may be sent additional information to complete and return to make sure that you are accessing the correct service.
