Surrey Thoracic Surgery Triage Guidelines

All referrals are triaged to next available surgeon based on urgency requested.

 

If a specific surgeon is desired, or has already been made aware of the patient, please indicate so and all efforts will be made to book an appointment with that surgeon. If that surgeon is unavailable for the urgency requested, the next available surgeon will be assigned.

 

If the referring physician, or the patient, wish to be seen by a specific surgeon only, regardless of availability, please indicate so in the letter of introduction.
