Friendly Reminder for Our Patients

To avoid running out of your regular medications and interrupting your treatment, we ask for your cooperation in keeping track of your prescriptions.

  • Please book an office appointment 6 – 8 weeks before you need to renew your prescriptions.
  • Keep track on the calendar when the Pharmacist tells you the status of your refills.

Plan ahead for holidays – check with the Pharmacist for the availability of refills and book an office appointment if necessary.

Thank you!

Endoscopy Scope Group VIDEO

Health Matters

Spring 2018

Happy Spring everyone !

It feels like it has been a long winter but clearly spring has finally arrived in Vanderhoof.  Things are getting back to normal now that the flooding damage at the SJH OR has been repaired.

The Clinic continues to be busy but having a full complement of Physicians since the fall has been a plus for patients.  We have more open appointments and wait times for the next available appointment have often been much shorter.

In the broader picture, the Physicians and staff at the Clinic continue to work in partnership with the Northern Health Interprofessional team to deliver team-based patient care.  A new patient handout has been developed that provides information on the shared electronic medical record.   

Another exciting development in 2018 has been the start of a regular High School Clinic for youth at N.V.S.S.  Running every Wednesday morning, students can be seen by a Physician at N.V.S.S. until the end of school year.  The Clinic has been quite successful and the Physicians hope to continue the service in the fall of 2018.
