State-wide referral criteria (SRC) are clinical decision-support tools that give health professionals the referral criteria they need to refer their patients to public specialist outpatient services across NSW.

SRC helps people who need to see a health professional in a NSW public specialist outpatient service to be referred and prioritised in a safe and timely way. They support patients and the health professionals looking after them to make a referral, and assist NSW public specialist outpatient services with screening and triaging these referrals.

Important information for referring health professionals

​General practitioners and other referring health​ professionals may refer patients to specialist outpatient services. This can be for a diagnosis, procedure, assessment, treatment and/or education. If there is a change to a patient’s condition while waiting for their appointment, referring health professionals​ may further investigate and manage the situation, send an updated referral to the outpatient service, check HealthPathways for urgent/same day advice or contact the relevant clinical team.​
