Refer a Patient
Thank you for trusting us to care for your patient. All new physician consultations continue to require a referral through MSP. We encourage you to use our Referral Form that was developed in conjunction with Partners in Care.
A reminder that all orthopaedic surgery referrals require an attached x-ray report in order for the referral to be triaged. Information on preferred x-ray views to order as well as a directory of surgeon's areas of specialty interest can be found in our referral and x-ray information form.
First Available Appropriate Surgeon Triage - "FAAST"
We are piloting a First Available Appropriate Surgeon Triage (FAAST) model where you can choose to refer your patient to a specific physician/surgeon or you can refer your patient to the first available appropriate surgeon.
Referrals are triaged every three to seven days. Urgent orthopaedic surgery referrals should continue to be directed to the on-call surgeon/clinician through the hospital switchboard at (250) 370-8699. All other urgent referrals should be communicated via telephone to the specific physician.
