We have designed this program to provide ANFHT patients who have been diagnosed with diabetes.
This program is offered in a group virtual setting to patients 18 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes.
The session will be facilitated by 2 members of your diabetic team – registered nurse(s) and/or dietitian.
Next session: TBD
After Hours Care
If I am sick after work hours do I have to go to the hospital?
If you think it's an emergency, you should go to the nearest hospital. However, you should be aware that there are several alternatives for you and your family after hours.
For example, our Family Health Team offers extended hours Monday through Thursday. We would advise you to call us prior to visiting a clinic.
As an enrolled patient you also have access to the Telephone Health Advisory Service where a registered nurse will provide you with advice about what to do about your concern, and with your permission, report back to your Physician. (1-866-553-7205). This is an after hours service, which is available Monday to Friday, between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m., weekends and holidays.
Telehealth Ontario also provides free access to a registered nurse 24/7 at 1-866-797-0000. A nurse can provide both health advice on a specific concern or general health information. They do not diagnose and do not replace your physician.
