The Northern Health Virtual Primary and Community Care Clinic has been providing care to patients in the North for one year! Staff at the NH Virtual Clinic celebrated their one year milestone on Tuesday, November 16. In the past year, the Virtual Clinic has had 57,470 nursing appointments and 9,129 family doctor or nurse practitioner appointments.
The Virtual Clinic is for people who are physically located in the Northern Health region when they call, who:
- Don’t have a family doctor or nurse practitioner.
- Need care on weekends, after their health centre is closed (You’re encouraged to call your family doctor or nurse practitioner first, or the urgent and primary care centre in your community).
Thank you to all the staff, family doctors, and nurse practitioners who have been providing care to Northerners at the Virtual Clinic over this past year. For more information visit the the Northern Health Virtual Primary and Community Care Clinic webpage.
