With over 489 physicians providing comprehensive, community-based primary care to more than 329,000 patients in 132 medical practice locations in the Calgary West Central area, the likelihood that your doctor is a member of our Primary Care Network is quite good.
There are over 42 Primary Care Networks in Alberta serving family physicians by offering programs and services designed to support your local family doctor.
The CWC PCN works with over 85 clinics to provide allied health care professionals including nurses, behavioural health consultants, social workers and patient care coordinators to facilitate the right service at the right time for the patient.
The CWC PCN has programs to help provide you with increased access to a doctor. Through the Primary Care Centre, we offer seven-day-a-week, same-day appointment service for non-emergency care to patients whose family physician is a member of the CWC PCN.
Seniors with complex medical issues can be referred by their family physician to the Geriatric Assessment & Support (GAS) program. Each evaluation lasts about three hours and may involve consultations with professionals such as pharmacists, geriatric psychiatrists or gerontology nurses. For seniors that are home-bound, a small pilot program in partnership with Alberta Health Services called Seniors Home Based Primary Care provides a comprehensive team-based care program allowing some frail seniors to receive care in place.
The Calgary West Central PCN is made up of 496 physicians in over 134 clinics.find one near you
