Our Clinic + COVID-19
Prioritizing your health and safety is important to us.
At the Victoria East Medical Clinic, we care about our patients and their safety. During this time, with the global COVID-19 pandemic, we are making changes to how our clinic operates. Services that we provide to our patients are being modified to balance and maintain patient and staff safety with healthcare accessibility.
We continue to prioritize patient safety which is why we've added a COVID 19 vaccination policy for our doctors and staff.
What we're doing to keep patients safe
The residents of Saskatchewan have done well with hand-washing and physical-distancing, which is why our province is able to gradually re-expand in-person health care services. Patients will be offered either virtual or in person appointments. Patients will be screened prior to entry into the clinic. Medical grade masks will remain mandatory when visiting our clinic. To avoid crowding, we ask that non essential family members wait in their vehicle. We are limiting numbers of patients in our waiting room and bringing people directly into exam rooms once they are cleaned.
The afterhours clinic is open Monday-Friday 5pm-9pm, Sat/Sun/Holidays 9am-5pm.
Registration is done over the phone. During the week, clinic patients may call at 4:30pm, non-clinic patients may call at 4:45pm. Every patient entering our clinic must wear a medical grade mask. For up to date wait times and hours check Medimap.ca, or call us at (306) 789-4677.
Every person who comes into the clinic will be asked to wear a medical grade mask. It is so important for patients to call upon arrival as we ask patients to wait in their vehicles if an exam rooms is not available. When an exam room is available, one of our staff members will take you to the appropriate department or examination room.
We have committed ourselves to sanitizing our clinic more often and more thoroughly. We regularly receive updates on the latest news, information, and recommendations on COVID-19 so that we can stay current with our understandings of the pandemic, and how to best protect our staff, physicians, and patients.
