Make a referral

Hummingbird House accepts referrals from any health professional with a provider number, that is involved in a child or young person’s care. Please refer to our eligibility criteria to determine a child or young person’s suitability for our service, or contact our Clinical Care Team on (07) 3621 4364 or info@hummingbirdhouse.wmq.org.au to discuss their situation.

Our established referral pathway accepts babies from 24 weeks of pregnancy through to young people up to 18 years of age, with every referral reviewed by a multidisciplinary paediatric palliative care panel.

Referrals must be made using our detailed guest referral form with the consent of the child or young person’s parent or guardian. As a child or young person’s acuity and care needs are vital to our review process we may contact you for additional information during the review process.

Once a referral is received and reviewed by our team, the outcome of the referral will be shared with the referrer and child/young person’s family. If you have any questions about our decision we welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you. To do this, email info@hummingbirdhouse.wmq.org.au and we will make a time to speak with you.
