Urgent Referrals

Patients experiencing symptoms of thrombosis should go to the Emergency Department for immediate investigation or assessment.

Urgent referrals for patients newly diagnosed with a blood clot are made by physicians at the VGH, UBC and Richmond Hospital Emergency Departments or BC Cancer Agency.

To make an urgent referral to the Thrombosis Clinic, physicians are asked to fill out the Thrombosis Clinic Referral form from your institution. The form MUST be faxed to: 604-875-5071.

Please fill out the urgent referral form correctly and clearly. Please also provide full contact details for the physician filling out the form.

Patients referred for an urgent referral will be seen the next day at the Thrombosis Clinic.

Please note:
Thrombosis Clinic nurses are available from Monday to Friday, 9:30 – 5:30 pm only. If you experience an urgent matter in the evening or on the weekend, please call the Hospital Switchboard at 604-875-5000 and ask for the hematologist on call.
