OUR CLINICS WILL NOT BE RECEIVING ANY COVID 19 VACCINE.
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, the clinics are operating short of staff on many days and the clinics are also experiencing a higher volume of calls than normal. Please keep in mind that most communication is being done by telephone including medical appointments. Staff are doing the best that they can to answer the phones. Please do not stay on hold for long periods of time. Patients will have more success if they hang up and retry their call. We ask for patience during this stressful time.

ActiveCare family physicians are members of a FHO (Family Health Organization) which allows our enrolled patients access to THAS (Telephone Health Advisory Service).This service is available to FHO patients when our clinic is not open. You will be connected to a nurse who will ask a series of questions to assess your health concerns and be provided with health care advice so that you can manage your care at home or be advised to see your doctor or nurse practitioner within a few days. In some cases, the nurse will contact an on-call doctor to discuss your symptoms and determine the most appropriate course of action, or the nurse may advise you to go to the nearest emergency department. With your consent, the nurse will send information to your health care provider about your call to the T.H.A.S. THAS can be reached at 1-866-553-7205.
