After-Hours Medical Clinic to open in Lloydminster in April

*Please note the Prairie North Health Centre is now located in its permanent location at Rm 115 in Prairie North Plaza, 4910-50 St., Lloydminster. Click here for more clinic information.*

Lloydminster and area residents will soon be able to access non-emergency medical care at the Prairie North Health Centre After-Hours Clinic, located at 4806 50th Street in Lloydminster.

Beginning in early April, the after-hours clinic will be open from 4-8 p.m., Monday to Thursday. Prairie North Health Region is operating the clinic with the cooperation of a number of Lloydminster family physicians. The clinic will see patients on a walk-in, first come-first served basis.

“While Prairie North continues to recruit family physicians to Lloydminster, this after-hours clinic will help residents who do not have a family physician access non-emergency medical care in a timelier and more appropriate way,” said Lloydminster Hospital's Chief of Staff Dr. Kevin Govender, a family physician.

“Lloydminster physicians have recognized this community need and are working together and with Prairie North Health Region to better serve the needs of our patients,” said Dr. Marissa Dry, a Lloydminster family physician. “This clinic should help improve the flow of patients through the emergency department, as well.”

Patient files will be kept at the clinic, meaning patients who do not have a family physician will be able to return to the after-hours clinic for any continuing care and the physician working that evening will have access to the patient's file. For patients who do have a family physician, treatment records will be sent from the after-hours clinic to their own physician.

The after-hours clinic will not offer sutures, casting, or narcotic refills. Patients who are not sure whether they should go to the hospital's Emergency Department or the after-hours clinic could call HealthLine (Saskatchewan) at 1-877-800-0002 or HealthLink (Alberta) at 1-866-408-5465 24 hours a day for advice from a registered nurse.

All family physicians in Lloydminster and surrounding area are being offered the opportunity to participate on the after-hours clinic roster but are not required to do so.
