We are a Family Health Team comprised of Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Social Workers, Dietitians, Pharmacists, a Chiropodist, and other health professionals working together to provide primary and collaborative health care to the County of Brant and other surrounding communities. Through the Quality Innovation and Improvement Program we are involved in providing in-depth chronic disease management strategies.
The After-Hours Clinic is not a walk-in clinic and is only available to patients of the Family Health Team. Please contact your Family Physicians office and they will refer you to the Clinic to request a same-day appointment if appropriate.
We offer a free, community-wide blood pressure clinic to promote cardiovascular health in our community and raise awareness about the importance of blood pressure monitoring. No appointment or referral is required. A copy of your results will be provided to you. Please see programs for availability.
A Chiropodist, described as a foot specialist, can assess and provide medical treatment of nail and skin concerns, including nail care, corns and calluses, perform procedures, assess and treat chronic and acute conditions affecting foot and lower limb function, as well as diabetic foot care and assessment.
The FHT offers pre-booked appointments with a Registered Nurse starting at 5 pm. Types of appointments available include routine PAP smears, ear syringing, B12 and Prolia injections, newborn weight checks, STI testing, suture and staple removal, and memory testing.
Registered Dietitians are health professionals who are experts in nutrition and the human diet. Dietitians assess, counsel, and support their patients to make dietary changes to promote and improve health, as well as prevent and treat chronic illness and disease.
The Registered Social Worker provides the psychosocial perspective to primary care and focuses on the assessment, treatment, and prevention of mental illness, emotional, and other behavioral disturbances. This includes individual and group counselling, links to other community resources, education on mental health issues, and promoting mental health advocacy.
