Whether you’re looking for an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon, a cardiologist, an obstetrician or neurologist, you’ll be able to find appointments with these, and many other specialties listed in our online booking service .

A streamlined referral process

We listened to GPs and patients. They told us that booking an appointment with a specialist isn’t always easy or convenient and the referral process is outdated. Some patients delay or never actually book.

With St Vincent’s Priority , you can make the appointment, attach your referral letter and send it to the specialist’s practice management software. You are kept informed as your patient progresses from appointment booking to attending the consultation. 

St Vincent’s Priority closes the referral loop for GPs and is designed to reduce the wait time between referral and treatment.

How it works

Your patient needs an appointment with a St Vincent's Private Hospital specialist.

  1. You or your patient can search for an appointment type by location, specialty and sub-specialty. You can also search by your preferred date range.
  2. Appointments are displayed in order of availability, so you can see the first available appointment, as well as other appointment options.
  3. Your referral letter can be sent securely to the specialist practice during the booking process. You will also be kept informed about your patient's attendance at the appointment.
