Referrals are accepted directly from WRHA medical clinics and primary care or specialist physicians in the community.
The Clinical Health Psychology (CHP) Program supports the WRHA's health care model in which the primary care clinician (often the family physician) is the coordinator of needed health-care services. If you are a specialist initiating the referral, please copy the family physician where possible.
Psychology services can be accessed at 3 main hospital sites (see "Facilities and Locations" for other sites):
Health Sciences Centre
St Boniface Hospital
Victoria General Hospital
Referrals can be sent directly to the appropriate clinic or specialist psychologist, when known. More information regarding site-specific services and contact details is available in the "Services" section of this website. If you are unsure where to direct the referral, it may be faxed or mailed to the CHP regional office and we will direct it internally to the appropriate clinic or follow up with you to identify other appropriate services:
Clinical Health Psychology Program
PZ350 - 771 Bannatyne Avenue
Winnipeg MB R3E 3N4
Clinical Health Psychology's various clinics have differing wait times; you will be informed as to the availability of that service normally within a couple of weeks.
Referrals can be made in letter format or by using the CHP referral form.
