Transfer your medical record

Transferring your Deakin Medical Centre record to a new medical centre is easy, just follow the steps below.

  1. Attend your new clinic and register as a patient.
  2. Request a medical record transfer form from your new clinic and sign it.
  3. Send the form to Deakin Medical Centre via fax 8888 9945 or email askanurse@deakin.edu.au.
  4. A doctor will authorise release of your medical records, which are printed and sent via post or encrypted and sent electronically if your new clinic uses the same clinical software (Best Practice) as Deakin Medical Centre.

Please allow up to 14 working days for transfer of the record.
