When will your patient be invited to come for the first consultation at the UPCM outpatient pain clinic?
Once we have received the letter of referral of your patient, we will send the patient a number of pain questionnaires about his pain symptoms.
After the patient has completed and returned these forms (a stamped addressed envelope will be enclosed), he will be assigned to one of the doctors as a new patient.
We will send the patient the appointment for your first consultation by post.
In case of urgent referral your patient is informed about the date and time of his first consultation by one of our outpatient clinic co-workers by telephone.
