Referrals will be reviewed and triaged through Neurology Central Access and Triage (NCAT).
All referrals to neurology are to be made through Neurology Central Access and Triage (NCAT). Referrals to neurologists not involved with NCAT should be sent directly to their private offices.
Referrals will be triaged and assigned to the most appropriate neurology clinic (e.g. general neurology clinic versus a subspecialty clinic). Sometimes NCAT referrals will be returned to the referring physician requesting more information or suggesting a specific clinical pathway to be tried prior to referral.
All patients seen by a Neurologist belonging to NCAT within 3 years will be referred directly to the same neurologist when possible.
