    About your appointment

    There are two ways to make an appointment:

    Self-referral: Call (02) 43 623 443 to make an appointment. Please note you will not be able to claim any rebate through Medicare if you access the services through self-referral. You may access Private Health Fund rebates depending on your level of cover, so it’s best to speak with your fund about this.

    GP referral: Visit your GP or psychiatrist and discuss whether you are eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan or Eating Disorder Plan. Your doctor can write a referral to Myrtle Oak Clinic so you can claim some Medicare rebates on sessions with a psychologist and dietitian. If you need assistance with this process, please call us on 43623443.

    All referrals should be addressed to:

    Psychologist, Dietitian at Myrtle Oak Clinic

    Central Coast Clinic
    17/19 Reliance Drive
    TUGGERAH, NSW, 2259

    OR

    Newcastle Clinic

    WALLSEND, NSW, 2287

    Fax your referral to: (02) 4362 2998

    Medicare may cover some costs related to different types of eating disorder treatments.

    It is important to keep in mind that there are low-cost treatment options available for eating disorder treatments although access to them can be limited. For further information speak to our administration officer or clinician about the costs involved in treatment before you commence treatment.

    Who you will see really depends on why you are coming to us. We will offer you an assessment appointment with one of our Psychologists or Dietitians. We can then together work out who you may most benefit from having treatment with, or it may be a mix of treatment providers over the course of your journey with us.

    Yes, we encourage you to have as much support as possible. The level of involvement your support person has in treatment can be discussed with your clinician and it may change over time depending on your needs and preferences.

    We encourage you to make regular appointments with your GP. Your GP is able to medically manage your health, while our team supports you in managing your mental and nutritional health. When we all collaborate together we are able to monitor and adjust your treatment as needed. If you experience any dizziness, fainting or heart palpitations please seek emergency treatment immediately by calling 000 or presenting to your nearest emergency department.

    Treatment is a very individualised experience. We’ve outlined some of the best eating disorder treatment information here.
