  2. All referrals are triaged according to urgency.

  3. You will be contacted by phone to arrange a suitable appointment time, and this will be confirmed in writing.

  4. Please indicate if you would prefer to be seen at the Paediatric Clinic at Canberra Hospital.
    NB: Waiting times to be seen in the clinic are considerably longer than in private practice, and there is less flexibility in appointment times. You may be seen by dermatology registrars (doctors training to be dermatology specialists).

  5. If you wish to cancel or change an appointment time please call 6247 5429.



For General dermatology conditions:


  1. Referrals (including full contact details) to see Dr Drummond at McKay Gardens Professional Centre should be emailed referrals@actdermatology.com.au
    or faxed to 02 6247 3621.

  2. You will receive a letter with your appointment details.

  3. If you wish to cancel or change an appointment time please call 6247 5429.

  4. All referrals are triaged according to clinical urgency. For some conditions (e.g. routine skin checks), it may not be possible to offer an appointment in an appropriate time frame.

  5. Sending a referral does not constitute acceptance of the referral or guarantee that an appointment will be offered. Referrals are only accepted and a person becomes a patient of the practice once an appointment is made and confirmed, usually in writing.

  6. If it is not possible to offer you an appointment, your referral letter will be returned to your doctor so that arrangements can be made for referral to another specialist if necessary.
