This article forms part of our ‘Paperwork’ series for 2011, providing information about a range of paperwork that general practitioners complete regularly. The aim of the series is to provide information on the purpose of the paperwork, and hints on how to complete it accurately. This will allow the GP to be more efficient and the patient to have an accurately completed piece of paperwork for the purpose required.

Centrelink is a Commonwealth Government agency that delivers payments and services to the Australian community. This article highlights the range of forms general practitioners are commonly asked to complete for Centrelink clients and provides tips on accurate completion of these forms. This article is based on information outlined in the Centrelink factsheet ‘Helpful information for medical practitioners: Centrelink medical report – Disability Support Pension’ and on the Centrelink and Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs website. The information contained within this article has been checked for accuracy by Centrelink.
