General practitioners and medical specialists regularly refer patients to our services for assistance with general or specific drug therapy challenges. Patients likely to benefit from a referral have multiple drug therapies, sub-optimal treatment responses, adherence issues, questions and concerns, or advanced age. We accept referrals for patients with Canadian addresses, including residents in other provinces, regardless of their eligibility for PharmaCare-funded service or mobility issues.
Please include the following with your referral:
- patient name and contact information
- personal health number (PHN) (if applicable)
- referring physician name and contact information
- reason for referral
- notes, consultation letters, lab values and other health information (when available)
Our goal is to process requests within two business days of the referral being received by the Pharmacists Clinic.
