IUD or Implant Insertion/ Removal
This program is offered to all women who are ANFHT patients and of bearing age requesting insertion of hormonal IUD or sub-dermal contraceptive implant.
This service will also provide education to patients on pre and post insertion instructions. This is done to provide an alternative form of long acting reversible birth control.
Please call our office at 905-898-2240 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
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.
