Welcome to the Loyalist Family Health Team Website

 

Assessment Centre UPDATE

 
Effective June 1 2022, there will be NO doctor on site at the Beechgrove COVID Assessment Centre. The site remains OPEN for COVID-19 testing for those eligible under provincial criteria.
 
What does this mean for you?
Primary care (family doctor) offices are now able to assess their patients with symptoms of COVID-19, virtually or in person. Be sure to call your family doctor ahead of time to book your appointment (do not walk in). 
 
Remember that most healthy adults and children who are infected with COVID-19 develop mild or moderate illness and do not require medical treatment. Please self-isolate (follow these guidelines) and monitor your symptoms.
 
If you think you require medical attention for your COVID-19 symptoms and/or think that you may qualify for anti-viral treatment (screen yourself here), then contact your family doctor.  Note:  Anti-viral treatments must be started within 5 days of symptom onset so contact your family doctor as soon as possible.
 
What if I do not have a family doctor?
If you do not have a family doctor and think you require medical attention for your COVID-19 symptoms please call Health Connect Ontario at 1-866-797-0007 for assistance with navigating your healthcare options. You can also join a live chat with a healthcare navigator here.
 
Seek immediate medical attention at your Emergency Department by calling 911 if you have any of the following symptoms:
·         Severe difficulty breathing (struggling for each breath, can only speak in single words)
·         Severe chest pain (constant tightness or crushing sensation)
·         Feeling confused or unsure of where you are
·         Losing consciousness
