Referring Physicians Resources

Refer a Patient

Thank you for trusting us to care for your patient. All new physician consultations require a referral following MSP guidelines in BC.

We encourage you to use our Referral Form.  Attach all relevant reports to the completed referral form and fax them directly to the appropriate Orthopaedic Surgeon’s office (fax numbers are listed on the referral form).

Every referral requires an attached x-ray report for triage purposes. Incomplete referrals will only delay the triage process.

Acute Injury Referrals

Patients requiring urgent assessment (e.g. tumor, fracture or infection) are considered URGENT referrals. They should be faxed directly to the office of the orthopaedic surgeon ON CALL at the Royal Columbian Hospital. (Please call the Royal Columbian Hospital switchboard at 604.520.4253 to enquire).  All other urgent referrals should be communicated via telephone to the specific physician.

An appointment for these types of urgent referrals will generally be scheduled within 7 – 10 days
