I hope everyone is as excited for Christmas as I am.
The only bad part about Christmas this year is that there will not be a doctor here next week!!!
The next Dr. day in Coronach will be January 2, 2014 - Dr. Glaeske
There will also be no lab here next week....Lab hours resume on:
Thursday January 2 - 8:00 - 4:00
Friday January 3 - 8:00 - 4:00
Some things to watch for in the new year:
Coronach Primary care team has been doing its best to reach the members of our community to keep them informed on the services being offered. As much as the blog has had a great impact, it still doesn't reach everyone. Starting in January, we will be distributing a Coronach Primary Health Care newsletter, which will provide all of the same information that is on the blog. These newsletters will be available in some of the local businesses. As soon as we know for sure which businesses, I will let everyone know.
We are also planning on hosting education sessions on various topics. The first one being on Stress Education. (Date TBD) We hope to host one session every other month. The topic for each session will depend on the blog poll results.
Diabetes Clinics will continue to be offered once a month in the new year. These are the dates I have so far:
January 9th, February 20th, March 13th and April 10th.
If you would like to speak to the dietitian on one of these days,
I know that Christmas is approaching fast, and noone wants to be sick over Christmas. That is why it is so important to cancel your appointment if you no longer need it, so that we can fill that spot with someone that does!!!
**Appointments are booked up for tomorrow, but if you need to see a doctor, please call and have your name added to the cancellation list)**
Lab - 8:00 - 4:00
** I am in the process of doing Decembers calendars, I will post them as soon as I can**
I would also like to remind everyone of the next diabetes clinic on December 12. There are appointments available, and no referral is necessary. Please call the clinic @ (306)267-2200 to book an appointment!!
Last month we had the first of our monthly blog posts.
The question we asked you was:
Your Primary Health Care Team would like to know which of the following information sessions would be of interest to you??
1.Coping with Stress
2. Seniors Health
80% of the voters would like to see an information session on Coping with Stress.
Our primary health care team is in the process of planning this for you. Taking into consideration, that December is an extremely busy month for everyone, we have decided that it would be best to host our first education session in the new year. We will keep you posted on a date, but we are aiming for January!!
ALL PHYSIO APPOINTMENTS TODAY, AND EVERY WEDNESDAY FROM NOW ON WILL BE HELD IN THE CLINIC.
PLEASE NOTE: DR. GLAESKE WILL ONLY BE IN HIS OFFICE UNTIL NOON TOMORROW. AT THIS TIME THERE ARE NO OPENINGS. IF YOUR APPOINTMENT IS NO LONGER NEEDED, PLEASE CALL THE CLINIC TO CANCEL. THANK YOU
DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE DIABETES CLINIC TOMORROW. IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN APPOINTMENT, PLEASE CALL (306)267-2200 TO BOOK.
PENNY PARADE...DON'T FORGET TO COME DOWN TO THE HEALTH CENTRE ANY TIME BETWEEN NOW AND OCTOBER 16TH AND HAVE A LOOK AT THE PENNY PARADE DONATIONS. ALL PROCEEDS GO TOWARDS PURCHASING CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE RESIDENTS!!
AND LASTLY......DON'T FORGET TO VOTE ON WHICH INFORMATION SESSION WOULD BE OF INTEREST TO YOU.....
"The Coronach Primary Health Care Team is about engaging our community towards healthy living through a team approach by providing the right care at the right time."
To achieve this, we would like to offer monthly information sessions, to the community on various topics. I have started a poll to the left of the blog entries. Your participation in this poll will help us to determine what topics interest you the most. If there is something you are really interested in and do not see it in the options, please feel free to private message me on facebook...
Coronach Primary Care.
This poll will change on a regular basis, so keep posted
I just wanted to direct everyone to the bottom of the blog, where I have included a calendar. This calendar will have lab days and hours for Coronach, Willow-Bunch and Rockglen. It will also have diabetes clinic days, physio and mental health days and any other events that will be put on by the primary care team. This will not take the place of my blog posts. Click on each individual event to get the details!!
Just a reminder that I will be in the clinic today!! Dr. Guirguis will be here tomorrow, and there are still a few appointments available!!!
Please call (306)267-2200
**I would also like to remind everyone that we understand that sometimes things come up and you can't make your scheduled appointment, but if you call and cancel, that appointment becomes available for someone else!!**
I will be in the clinic today, Wednesday September 4th taking appointments for Thursday September 5th. Dr. Glaeske will be here tomorrow, and there are still some openings if anyone needs an appointment.
