Best Practice Guideline for Transfer of Care for Mental Health Patients Moving Between States and Territories

1 Jul 2021

The Best Practice Guideline for Transfer of Care for Mental Health Patients Moving Between States and Territories is now available.

This non-mandatory best practice guideline is applicable to all Health Service Providers and Contracted Health Entities that provide public mental health care including care that is provided in an Emergency Department.

It informs the assessment, treatment planning and transfer of care for people who have had contact with, or been treated by, mental health services in other states and territories, both those who have permanently relocated to WA and those temporarily in the state. It also informs the transfer of care for people who are moving from WA to another state or territory, both permanently and temporarily.

Those external to WA Health who cannot access the intranet link can request a copy of the document via @CSD, Mental Health Unit.
