Referrals

Allay Occupational Therapy referrals are managed by Lauren Pattinson. Lauren will work to match you with the most appropriate therapist to meet your needs.

  • You can refer directly for therapy services, without a formal referral from a doctor.
  • If you wish to claim rebates for therapy services through Medicare then you will need to have a Care Plan from your GP or specialist Consultant. Occupational therapists are registered for Mental Health Care Plans, Chronic Disease Management Plans and more. 
  • If you wish to claim through NDIS, we are a registered provider. 

To make a referral either call Lauren on 03 5222 3838, fax (03) 5294 0081, or email info@allayoccupationaltherapy.com.au. Enquiries are followed up on the same day.
