Referrals: Hematology

Teams at the QEII Cancer Centre and the Cape Breton Cancer Centre have worked together to develop a formalized central referral process for hematology.

As of March 1, 2022, all referrals to hematology, for both benign and malignant conditions, should be emailed ( or faxed (902-473-3910) to the Central Referral Office in Halifax. Referrals will be centrally triaged in Halifax and sent to the appropriate site as per the catchment area. This change will help streamline and expedite the referral process.

If you have questions regarding hematology referrals, please call 902-473-3447 or email
