Assessing Your Need
Your need for surgery is based on two variables – your personal health condition or situation and the urgency of the procedure you require.
Saskatchewan uses a standardized system for assessing your need for surgery. The system helps improve consistency and ensures fairness. This two-step process assesses your need for surgery as follows:
Patient assessment questionnaire + the urgency for your surgical procedure = your wait list priority.
The surgical care co-ordinator/regional contact in the region you are having surgery will be able to provide you with your assessed wait list priority.
