The Role of Clinic Contact for eReferrals

Please Note: Nova Scotia currently provides Ocean eReferrals access to primary care providers and surgeons. This allows referrals to be sent for surgical consults. Diagnostic Imaging Service referrals will also be made with this tool, starting with MRIs in September 2023.
