Information for GPs

At Intuition Private, we believe it's a privilege to partner with you in caring for your obstetric, gynaecology and fertility patients. 

REFER WITH CONFIDENCE​

You can expect professional and expert care, accurate diagnosis, and comprehensive management of obstetric and gynaecological related medical conditions.

We work hard to understand the requirements of our referrers and to exceed your expectations. We’ll keep you informed at all stages of your patient’s journey.

We have included some common questions for General Practitioners and other Valued Referrers, as well as downloadable resources such as brochures and service information for your reading.

To ensure a smooth booking process, we ask that you, our valued referrer send us a copy of your patients referral and relevant investigatory results soon after their appointment with you.

Once we receive the referral, our support team will assist your patient with making an appointment. Please advise your patient if they have not heard from us within 3 business after their referral has been sent over, to call the practice on 02 4321 0500.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. If you would like your patient to see a specific doctor at Intuition Private, please address your referral to either Dr Skilbeck, Dr Shah or Dr Hankins (at the Intuition Private address). Due to Medicare legislation, unfortunately we cannot accept referrals addressed to the Doctor at the Gosford Public Hospital Gynae Clinic.  As we have three specialist Doctors, if your patient’s priority is to obtain the soonest available appointment, we happily accommodate this by accepting your original referral, address to any one of our doctors. 
Please call us on 02 4321 0500 so we can accommodate your urgent referral request as soon as possible. At Intuition Private, we will ensure all urgent patient matters are seen to as a priority.

Dr Skilbeck: Exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital

Dr Shah: Exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital

Dr Hankins: Both Gosford Private Hospital and Gosford Public Hospital

Yes Dr Hankins’ patients can be consented at our private practice to have surgery at Gosford Public Hospital, if this is their preference.
Consulting privately often benefits the patient to minimise the wait time currently experienced at Gosford Public Hospital for their initial assessment and triage. 

Please note, upon submission of the Consent for Surgery Form to Gosford Public Hospital, your patient will be placed on the public waiting list in accordance with the appropriate recommended time frame as advised by the doctor. In most instances Dr Hankins will perform the surgery for the patient, however due to operational matters and length of waitlists, this is not always possible and therefore not guaranteed.

Please note: Dr Skilbeck and Shah operate exclusively from Gosford Private Hospital so the above information does not apply to their patients.  

No, generally not. Intuition Private is a full-service private clinic with expert doctors and state-of-the-art technology, offering an exceptional patient experience each and every time therefore there is an out of pocket expense associated with most consultations and procedures.   Intuition Private does however honour all DVA Veteran Affairs patient entitlements. 
Yes. We’d love to see you at our practice and we welcome to opportunity to meet you. It’s also a great way for you to see the latest technology we use and inspect our consulting/ procedure rooms. Please call 02 4321 0500 or email us [email protected] for further information.
