Referral information

New referrals are triaged by a team of three staff members: the medical director, a nurse and a psychologist. Typically, patients with cancer, some neuropathic pain types, postoperative pain and elderly patients are given priority and are seen as quickly as possible at the clinic, sometimes within a day or two. By contrast, normal priority patients, may wait a few months for their first appointment. Response to consults for pain management on wards is almost immediate.
