Visiting Senso Health

How to refer a patient

Patients with Medical Scheme cover: A Letter of Motivation (LOM) will be required to obtain authorisation from the patient’s Medical Scheme. It will be important to include as much information as possible on why the patient requires sub-acute care and how they will benefit from it.  The LOM can be sent to Senso Health’s Case Manager team who will start the authorisation process. This typically takes approximately 3-4 days to finalise.



Tel: 021 054 0183


Cash-paying patients: If your patient is not a member of a Medical Scheme, or will personally cover their Senso Health account, we will not require a Letter of Motivation. Patient details can be sent directly to our Case Manager team who will facilitate the process from there.
