*Please note: there are different referral arrangements for health professionals in Victoria where a client requires nursing or allied health CHSP services only. More detailed information, including how it relates to the new health professional webform, will be circulated shortly.

In addition, improvements have also been made to the myAssessor app to better align functionality with the assessor portal.
