Psychology and Mental Health

Referral Directory 2020

GPbook is the most relied upon source of information for referrals to medical specialists in WA and has been published for over 25 years. Our directories are used by over 2000 GPs in WA on a daily basis. We have opened up to psychologists. It will help doctors to find the right psychologist for their patient. We print both a paper copy of the directory that’s distributed to GP practices and an online directory.

We are sending out our 2020 Renewals. You will receive this by letter and email soon. For people who are currently listed, please use the Renewal Link attached to your email to ensure your listing for the new year, and you will also have a chance to update your existing listing.

Some topics covered includes:

Why did we develop a Referral Directory for Psychology and Mental Health?

As a GP, I wanted to make sure that patients who I referred for psychotherapy were seeing someone who’d be a good fit for their health issues. A good therapeutic relationship between psychologists and their patients is particularly important to the success of their treatment and knowing more about individual psychologists would help us to make better referral decisions.

This sort of information, however, wasn’t easily accessible. Additionally, GPs I worked with also felt that they wanted to know more about psychologists in the community and the services they offered.

What particular benefits will the GPbook (psychology edition) bring?

The directory is designed for use by GPs, meaning that critical information that can help make a referral decision is readily accessible. This includes the special interests of practitioners, their location, languages they speak and billing information. We have kept it in the same format as our specialist directory, with which GPs across WA are familiar. We believe it will particularly help patients with conditions for which it can be harder to find treatment such as borderline personality disorder or tinnitus.
