Parry Sound Family Health Team
The Parry Sound Family Health Team continues to work on improving the delivery of health care in Parry Sound for both our patients and the medical staff of the Family Health Team. We are improving our appointment availability with our Advanced Access initiatives and we have been working hard to both improve and upgrade our Electronic Medical Records (EMR) skills and capabilities.
At this point in time, we are very pleased to be able to announce the addition of a new part-time Physician to our Team. Dr. John Brennan will be joining the Wright Clinic Site as of November 2011. Dr. Brennan is a Family Physician who has cottaged in our area for many years and is an avid triathlete. He holds a Diploma in Sports Medicine and is looking forward to opening his practice in Parry Sound.
We are also very excited to be partnering with CAMH to bring our registered patients a new Smoking Cessation Program called STOP with FHT's . Please see our dedicated web page or talk to your clinic about this exciting "Quit Smoking" initiative that offers free Nicotine Replacement Therapy.
We are continuing to run our regular Diabetes Clinics, so if you haven't been to one yet, please be sure to ask when your Physician's next clinic is. Flu Season is also now upon us, so be sure to your visit your Site's Flu Shot Clinic and don't miss out on getting your flu shot this fall.
Our two larger Sites are currently working on launching brand new Hypertension Clinics for those patients with high blood pressure. We are looking forward to improving the care of our Hypertensive patients with these Nurse-led clinics.
