Extended hours for Carlyle clinic

Comments

The Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) has announced that there will be extended hours at the Carlyle Primary Health Care Clinic this summer.

The expanded clinic hours will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month, beginning May 15, and continuing until the end of August.

Clinic hours on all other weekdays will remain from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We look forward to this opportunity to provide extended access to patients,” said primary health care regional director Wanda Miller.

“We believe it will be of value to those patients who work regular hours, and find it hard to access health services during regular business hours. They will have the option twice a month to book an evening appointment.

“The extended hours will be available during the summer as a trial run. We will evaluate the service at … that time to determine if it fills a community need.”

The SCHR has focused on the expansion of primary health care clinics in its communities over the past four years, in an effort to increase public access to basic services delivered by a team of health care professionals.

The health region says primary health care is about staying healthy by preventing illness and injury; managing chronic conditions, treating acute medical illness; promoting healthier living; and accessing the best health provider for the job.
