Children and adolescents may be referred to the Complex Care Service from within the hospital by a member of the patient’s healthcare team or by a physician in the community.
To refer a patient to our service, we ask that you send a:
- Consultation form indicating the reason of referral
- Completed “Physician Referral Form” (available upon request)
- Medical summary, if possible
These forms must be sent by fax to 514-412-4424. Upon receipt of these documents, we will contact the family to complete the “Family Referral Form” for additional information. Once all documents are received, patients will be assigned a priority according to the needs identified. We then send a letter to the referring physician with either an appointment date, an estimated wait time for the patient to be seen in our Consult Clinic or an explanation of why the patient is not suitable for assessment in our program.
