Frequently Answered Questions

What is a Family Health Team?

A Family Health Team (FHT) is an approach to primary health care that brings together different health care providers to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for you – the patient. Our team consists of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals who work collaboratively, each utilizing their experience and skills within the clinic to provide you with the very best and most up-to-date care, when you need it.

How will the Family Health Team benefit me?

The services focus on primary health care including disease prevention, health promotion and disease management.

Will I still get to see my doctor if he or she joins a Family Health Team?

Yes. Family Health Teams are a team approach to health care where your doctor will be able to focus on your complex medical problems but you’ll have access to different health care professionals according to your needs.

Are there After Hours Clinics?

Yes. After hours care is available evenings Monday-Thursday and Saturday mornings by appointment only for rostered patients of STAR Family Health Team. Information regarding after hour clinics is available here.

 

Will I always see my family physician at my appointments?

Not necessarily. Sometimes you may see another member of our interdisciplinary team such as a nurse practitioner, mental health clinician or registered dietitian within your circle of care.

How do I cancel an appointment?

Please contact the office where you scheduled your appointment.
