Referral criteria

Most referrals are tertiary and of patients with documented valve disease of at least moderate grade.

However, any referral with significant cardiac symptoms or a significant murmur will be considered and seen in either a general cardiac clinic or the specialist clinic.

Asymptomatic patients with a soft ejection systolic murmur and well-heard second heart sound do not usually need referral.

Referrals from other hospitals must include a completed Inter-Provider Minimum Data Set or ensure that one is sent within 48 hours of referring a patient.
