PTFN Health has received a letter from the Director of First Nations and Inuit Health Branch dated August 20th that outlines the following:
- Due to the increase in calls for non-urgent medical travel the Edmonton Referral Unit we are asking that First Nations Health units advise their members that all requests and documentation be submitted within 2 business days in advance of the departure time. Please ensure your documentation is brought forward to PTFN Health within the time line outlined.
- Documents received in less than 24 hours create workflow problems for the ERU staff and may impact clients which will result in the rescheduling of trips.
Thanks you for your cooperation,
PTFN Health Administration
