Your Care Is Our Priority
Beacon Health is committed to providing patient-centred care for all of our patients
These policies reflect our general expectations of our patients and their expectations for care in our office. If you have any concerns or questions, please discuss them with a staff member or with your doctor.
Use Of Walk In Clinics
Beacon Health is a mandated by the Ministry of Health to provide best access to personalized care and quality services. All of our doctors have a number of urgent appointment available daily. Additionally, the after hours clinic is available for urgent appointments in the evening 5pm- 8 pm Monday -Thursday and 10am-1 pm on Saturday. The Ministry of Health provides funding to the clinic on the basis that enrolled patients commit to receiving their care through Beacon Health rather than a walk in clinic, whenever possible. The use of walk in clinic services can result in a financial penalty for your doctor and the clinic. Please note, we do not receive medical records from walk in clinics and therefore have difficulty providing follow up comprehensive care.
We recognize that this model of care may not be suitable for everyone and that some patient may prefer to use walk in clinics. Please speak with your doctor if this is the case.
