Walk In Clinics July 27 to August 5, 2016

July 12, 2016



Please be advised, the Kincardine Community Medical Clinic, Clinic Laboratory Services and Kincardine Family Health Team will provide limited services starting July 27, 2016 to August 5, 2016 (inclusive), the result of a planned computer systems upgrade.

During the limited services period, physicians and nurse practitioners’ at the clinic will not be seeing patients as usual, but rather, we will be hosting a series of Walk-In Clinics to meet the needs of our rostered patient complement. The Walk-In Clinics will only be available for patients currently rostered or enrolled as patients of the Kincardine Community Medical Clinic.

The following date(s) and time(s) are available for Walk-In Clinic patients:

  • Thursday July 28, 2016              9:00AM to 3:00;
  • Friday July 29, 2016                  9:00AM to 1:00;
  • Tuesday August 2, 2016             9:00AM to 3:00;
  • Wednesday August 3, 2016        9:00AM to 3:00; and
  • Friday August 5, 2016                9:00AM to 1:00. 

The following date(s) and time(s) are available for Nurse Clinic appointments:

  • Thursday July 28, 2016             9:00AM to 12:00 (noon);
  • Friday July 29, 2016                  9:00AM to 12:00 (noon);
  • Tuesday August 2, 2016            9:00AM to 12:00 (noon);
  • Wednesday August 3, 2016        9:00AM to 12:00 (noon); and
  • Friday August 5, 2016               9:00AM to 12:00 (noon). 

To access an appointment with the Nurse’s Clinic, please contact the office or simply attend the Clinic and register. Access to the Nurses’ Clinic will operate similar to the Walk-In Clinic, on a first come, first serve basis.

The Walk-In Clinic is specifically designed to ensure conditions that are of a lesser acuity and are non-urgent may be seen in the Clinic setting, avoiding congestion at the hospital emergency department.

It is imperative to note, if you are currently on a regularly prescribed course of treatment, please ensure you have a sufficient supply of medication PRIOR to July 27, 2016. It may be necessary to contact your physician or nurse practitioner’s office, to request an incremental refill sufficient to ensure continuity of your prescribed treatment plan. Conversely, should you have a Standing Order for routine Laboratory tests; you may need to proceed to an alternate lab testing facility to fulfill your requisition during this time.

Medication refills and/or renewals will NOT be provided during Walk-In Clinic dates. Walk-In Clinic dates will be solely operated on a first come, first served basis. Once the available appointment time slots have been filled for any given Walk-In Clinic date, patient registration will close for the day and appropriate signage will be posted on external Clinic doors.

During Walk-In Clinic dates, you may be seen by either a physician or a nurse practitioner, and not necessarily by your own primary care provider.

We apologize for any inconvenience in this regard; however, our systems upgrade and requisite training are necessary to ensure we continue to provide our patients with optimal care, at the right time, and at the right place.
 

Sincerely,

New - Afterhours Service

PRESS RELEASE


The Kincardine Family Health Team (KFHT) is pleased to announce the expansion of primary care services that will soon be offered to residents of the Municipality of Kincardine and Township of Huron-Kinloss, through the development and establishment of an Afterhours Service.

The Afterhours Service will be available to the community and patients of the Family Health Team. A Nurse Practitioner (NP) within the KFHT will see patients with non-emergent conditions that require immediate attention. The Afterhours Service is open to anyone in our community. No appointment is required and will operate on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Afterhours Service will be operational on scheduled Mondays and Thursdays from 5:00pm – 8:00pm and is intended for patients experiencing an acute illness or injury. Visits are short and are meant to address one problem at a time. An Afterhours visit would be appropriate for minor injuries, viral illness, sick children, skin rashes, minor burns, minor infections, small wounds, cough, fever, etc.

Visits that are NOT appropriate for Afterhours would include: chronic illness (old injuries, maintenance of diabetes etc.), medication adjustments, routine medication refills, requests for lab test or procedure results, routine blood pressure checks, severe pain requiring narcotic medications, complete physicals, and physical assessments required for work or school etc.

Gerry Glover, Chief Executive Officer of the Family Health Team said “implementation of the Afterhours Service is part of our commitment to improve access to ensure the right care, at the right time, at the right place is available for when patients are in need of immediate care for non-urgent concerns. The Afterhours Service is not designed, nor intended, to replace appointments with your primary care provider; but rather, to augment the patient-centered experience through increased access and delivery of healthcare services.”

It is conceivable that available appointment time slots for Afterhours Service may fill quickly and registration may close earlier than expected or anticipated, to accommodate patients whom registered earlier in the evening. Once the available appointment time slots have been filled, the Afterhours Service will close, appropriate signage posted and the doors locked.

The Afterhours Service will be CLOSED all statutory holidays including the Civic Holiday.

Access to the Kincardine Family Health Team is at no cost to the patient. Members of the KFHT work in collaboration with your primary care provider to provide comprehensive healthcare services. Please contact the KFHT or your primary care provider for further information or referral. Visit kincardinefht.ca to read more about the Afterhours Service and other Family Health Team programs and services available to our patients.

Afterhours Service – Common Question

How do I get an Afterhours Service appointment?
Registration is on a first come-first served basis. Afterhours Registration opens at 5:00pm and patients are registered in order of arrival. Once all available Afterhours appointment slots have been filled, the Afterhours Service will close for the evening and necessary signage will be posted. The Afterhours Service is most appropriate to conditions of lesser acuity best managed away from the acute setting.

Is the Afterhours Service only in Kincardine?
Yes. The Afterhours Service is currently only offered at the Kincardine site. The Service will be held in the Family Health Team offices, unless otherwise stated.

What is considered “acute”?
A condition that “comes up suddenly” is acute – including, but not limited to: a sore throat, ear/eye infection, rashes, animal bites, etc.

Chronic conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, medication refills, form completions, or annual physicals) are not considered urgent and should be managed through routine office practice appointments.

I work during the day and don’t have time to see my doctor, so can I wait for the Afterhours Service to see the nurse practitioner?
No. For any regular office appointment, you must call your doctor’s office and schedule a regular visit with your doctor or primary care provider.

I don’t have a doctor; can I see a Nurse Practitioner in Afterhours Service?
Yes. In an effort to ensure patients receive the best care, at the right time, at the right place, the Afterhours Service will provide service and allow access to all within our community.

I am in need of a doctor, who do I contact?
If you do not currently have a doctor contact Health Care Connect at 1-800-445-1822 or http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/ms/healthcareconnect/public/ and they will connect you with a doctor.

Do I need to bring my Health Card?
Yes. A valid Ontario Health Card is required at every visit. Please inform the receptionist if your address, phone number or health card version code has changed.
 

If this is a medical emergency please seek medical care at the nearest emergency department or contact 911.

Did You Know?

Fentanyl Patch-4-Patch Program
The abuse and misuse of fentanyl patches is a very serious issue, causing significant harm, including death. The physicians of Kincardine are working together to ensure that all prescribed fentanyl patches are accounted for.

If you or a loved-one is prescribed fentanyl patches, you will be asked to return your used patches to your pharmacy before receiving your next refill of new patches.  This will ensure that all patches are kept safely in the hands of those for whom they have been prescribed.

Physician Practice Closure Update September 23, 2015

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic and Family Health Team wish to announce recruitment of nurse practitioners Melissa Wright and Hailey Walsh.  

Patients of Dr. Rejean Dwuyn and Dr. Steven Poirier will continue to contact the clinic utilizing the numbers associated with those respective medical practices for the purposes of scheduling and confirming follow-up appointments, receive test results, and to conduct regular business.

By employing a combination of continuous nursing and locum coverage arrangements, former patients of Dr. Duwyn and Dr. Poirier will have continued access to dedicated, full-time primary healthcare services. When an affected patient contacts the clinic to schedule an appointment, they will be advised they may be seen by either the nurse practitioner or by a physician.

In Ontario, Registered Nurses in the Extended Class, also known as Nurse Practitioners (NPs), are registered nurses with additional education (typically a Master’s degree coupled by practicum hours) and experience who are able to order and interpret diagnostic tests, communicate diagnoses, prescribe pharmaceuticals and perform specific procedures.

Regarding the recent practice closure affecting patients of Dr. Engle. The Clinic is currently updating the Patient Assignment & Notification Process and efforts are underway to reassign affected patients to remaining clinic physicians. Patients of Dr. Engle will still be able to access patient appointments with Dr. Engle until his departure date of November 26, 2015. Following Dr. Engle’s departure, patients will be temporarily assigned to a remaining physician at the clinic until a replacement physician is recruited. We are trying to keep the respective practices intact to make them attractive for physician recruitment initiatives.

The Patient Assignment & Notification Process will be finalized with notifications sent to patients via regular post on or before October 31, 2015.

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic and the Kincardine Family Health Team are engaged in discussions with the Physician Recruiter, the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care and the Municipality of Kincardine, in an effort to ensure patients ongoing medical needs are met.

The Patient Information Line has been updated to include a recorded option for Dr. Engle’s patients. Patients and the general public will be able to access the latest developments via the Information line. Please feel free to call: 519.396.4300 at any time to access the latest updates in this regard.

We apologize for any inconvenience as a result of the practice closures and seek your continued understanding as we transition through this process.  To ensure consistent and timely flow of information, patients and the general public are urged to contact the information line, established for this purpose, rather than contacting individual physician offices.

Date Posted:2015-09-23
Physician Practice Closure Update May 1, 2015

The Kincardine Community Medical Clinic will maintain continuity of care for patients who are affected by the closures of the medical practices of Dr. Rejean Duwyn and Dr. Steven Poirier, effective July 17, 2015.

The practice closures were difficult personal decisions, and both physicians would like to express their appreciation for the understanding of their patients, the Municipality, the supportive and welcoming community as well as their respective clinic staff.

The Clinic appreciates the closures will result in inconvenience and stress and we are developing a coordinated plan to address patient concerns, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • There is no intention to initiate an Orphan Clinic;
     
  • Affected patients will be temporarily assigned to a physician at the clinic until replacement physicians are recruited;
     
  • Initiation of a Patient Information Line, whereby patients will be able to obtain the most up-to-date information. The Patient Information Line is: 519.396.4300.

Respiratory Therapy

The Kincardine Family Health Team is pleased to announce the development of a strategic partnership with Centric Health for the provision of Respiratory Therapy scheduled to commence January 2014. The partnership will result in the implementation of services available at the Family Health Team specific to spirometry testing, Asthma/COPD education, as well as, a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Clinic.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) is a broad program that helps improve the well-being of people who have chronic (ongoing) breathing problems. For example, PR may benefit people who have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), sarcoidosis (sar-koy-DOE-sis), idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or cystic fibrosis.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation doesn't replace medical therapy. Instead, it's used in conjunction with medical therapy and may include:

  • Exercise training
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Education on your lung disease or condition and how to manage it
  • Energy-conserving techniques
  • Breathing strategies
  • Psychological counseling and/or group support

Access to the Kincardine Family Health Team is at no cost to the patient. Members of the KFHT work in collaboration with your physician to provide comprehensive healthcare services. Please contact your physician or nurse for further information or referral.
