Joint Infection referral
To refer a patient for treatment of a Shoulder or Elbow Infection, please complete this online referral form. In addition, you will need to forward all relevant images via IEP. Also available is a printable PDF version of the Joint Infection referral form.
Our referral criteria are found in the Referrals page.
After the referral has been submitted, an automated reply will confirm the referral has been received. The referrer will be contacted by the Shoulder and Elbow MDT coordinator regarding any images not available via IEP.
All referrals will be triaged within 72 hours and all cases will be discussed at the monthly Shoulder and Elbow Infection MDT meetings held at the RNOHT. All treatment, including the antibiotic therapy program, will be coordinated from the RNOHT.
