House Calls for seniors
UPDATE: House Calls is adjusting our referral process. We will be resuming the review of medically urgent referrals from our partners. Please ensure that you outline the reason for urgency on the referral.
Over the last 3 years, we have had an influx of referrals for increasingly sick and vulnerable patients struggling to access primary care. This is a reflection of the state of the healthcare system in the province as a whole, and it is clear that our team is not immune to the pressures the system is under. Our team continues to work hard to provide a high level of care to our patients, the quality of care they deserve. Due to limits on our funding, however, we are now in a position at this time to accept new patients based on the reason for urgency. This is not the place we want to find ourselves in, but it is our reality at this time. We hope that with funding reforms and a greater investment in primary health care teams that we can reopen to referrals in the near future.
We will review our capacity in the Summer 2024 and will update accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.
