How can people get referred to SRI?

Spinal cord injury patients may now be referred to SRI

for their rehabilitation when they are:

- assessed via the Outreach clinics

- or assessed by their general practitioner

- or assessed by any of the specialist SCI

physicians

- referred by their ACC Support/Service Coordinator

Once SRI receives a referral from any of the above

clinicians they will contact the patient and then ACC to

facilitate the funding etc. However for those patients not

covered under ACC, a fee for service is required.
