​​​​​​​Urgent Referral​​

If your patient needs immediate, urgent care, please do the following:

  • Determine if patient requires emergency services first. If not, please ensure that the urgency is identified on the referral with the support of your clinical reasoning.
  • We will try our best to accommodate these requests as soon as possible but please understand that we have a high demand for our services and waiting lists for certain clinics.​

 

Standard Referral​​​

For referrals to the Intrathecal Baclofen Clinic, download and complete the PDF icon imageITB Referral Form.
