The Central LHIN is working to improve care for musculoskeletal conditions through the implementation of a new model of care; MSK Central Intake, Assessment and Management — a centralized referral system for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions. Referrals for primary hip and knee arthroplasty are the first type of MSK surgery to be processed under the new Central Intake, Assessment and Management system. 

  • Access the referral form on the Central LHIN website (the PDF referral is under Information for Primary Care Physicians) or download the form here.
