Fecal Immunochemical Test (Fit) Program

Halton Healthcare offers a Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) Program within its hospitals to expedite recommended endoscopic/colonoscopic investigations for patients who have already received an abnormal or positive FIT test result.

Referring Patients with Abnormal/Positive FIT Test Results

Healthcare practitioners referring new patients into the FIT Program are required to complete the Positive FIT Referral Form – available on this webpage under  ‘Related Downloads’ and fax it back to 1-905-815-5133.

Patients will be scheduled with the first available Endoscopist who performs FIT positive colonoscopies. The hospital will triage the requisition and coordinate the patient care path, as appropriate. Patients will be scheduled to the Halton Healthcare hospital site closest to his/her home or closest to his/her primary care provider, based on patient preference.

For more information about the referral process, please call 905-338-2983.
