Referral Guidelines

Information for Referring Physicians

LRCP has a different referral process than other Ontario cancer centres. Our policy is to discuss treatment options during the patientís first visit with the oncologist.

In order for the oncologist to make treatment decisions at the first appointment, all medical workups and tests need to be completed prior. The oncologist will need the results of these tests in order to design the treatment that is best for your patientís type of cancer.

Since cancer is different in every patient, the type of tests and examinations that must be completed will vary. Please refer to the Intake Guidelines below to determine the type of information that we need from you, as a healthcare provider, in order to properly process incoming patients at LRCP.
