"Your doctor will see you now."
In an effort to address frustrations from some Saskatchewan residents regarding access to in-person doctor’s appointments, the Saskatchewan College of Family Physicians is reaching out to assure patients they are working harder than ever to keep people healthy and safe.
“There’s a lot of people who are scared to come to the office [clinic] and we’re doing our utmost to make sure the office remains a safe environment for people to come and see us,” said Dr. Myles Deutscher, president of the College of Family Physicians. “I want to reassure everyone that we are doing our best to ensure a safe environment.”
A new promotional campaign produced in partnership with the Saskatchewan Medical Association, reminds the public that in addition to clinic visits, they can have their health concerns addressed by phone or video chat. The videos encourage patients not to ignore their health needs, and is part of an effort by physicians across the province to continue to provide high quality health care amid the pandemic.
