Important Letter to Our Clients

Effective Immediately

Dear Client(s):

Due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, we will be making temporary changes to the process in how we care for you. Our goal is to minimize potential exposure to as many as possible while freeing up resources to attend to those who require urgent care.

Effective immediately we will no longer be booking routine appointments. If you have a booked appointment, we will be calling you to postpone it or change this appointment. If you have further questions about your appointment, please contact reception at 613-205-1025 ext.5 for further assistance.

Before coming to the clinic, please call reception at 613-205-1025 ext. 5 to allow us to appropriately triage your call. 

Examples of routine appointments include:

Periodic health visits, annual physicals, PAP tests and clinics, Well Baby Check-ups (where an immunization is NOT required), routine Blood Work.

In addition, our staff will be reviewing their schedules going forward. Those that can be accomplished safely by phone will be booked as such. Visits that are of a more urgent nature and require an in-person visit will still be booked at the discretion of your Nurse Practitioner.

If you have respiratory symptoms, cough fever, difficulty breathing we ask that you stay home and call our office 613-205-1025 or public health:

Lanark Leeds Grenville Public Health Unit: 1-800-660-5853

If you are running out of medication, please ask the pharmacy to fax the renewal request to the Smiths Falls Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic.

 

Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics are a collaborative team based health care model in which Nurse Practitioners are the lead providers of primary health care. These clinics were created to provide accessible, quality family health care services to people that are unattached in their community.
