ACAT Referral Form (aged care assessment team)
ACAT provides a service to the entire Mackay Health Service District including Bowen, Collinsville, Moranbah, Clermont and St Lawrence. The area is large and the team is only small so it is hoped that by revising the ACAT referral form, the number of unnecessary or inappropriate referrals can be reduced. The ACAT 2012 Referral form has been put together to assist with educating referrers about who is eligible for assessment and the aim is that it will be friendly and easy to use.
