Priority WorkCover Referral

Early assessment of injured workers

Spinal injuries at the workplace can be a cause of prolonged time off from work with negative long-term consequences for workers.

Early assessment by experienced spine specialists contributes to faster return to work and better health outcomes for injured workers.

We aim to assess WorkCover patients within 2 weeks to:

  • provide timely clearance to workers who can safely return to work
  • identify workers that will benefit from treatment
  • assist with early treatment interventions

  • Claim No
  • WorkCover Insurance, e.g. QBE, GIO, EML, etc.
