Please note, as of March 1, 2012, Dr. Paul Stent will be the only, full-time, physician providing Medical Services at the Fort St. James Medical Clinic. Together with Northern Health and the District of Fort St. James, we are working to find full-time permanent physicians for our community. Dr. Gustus and Dr. Shani van der Spuy will be coming from Vanderhoof one day each week to provide medical service.
While we are in transition, the clinic will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00p.m., Monday through Friday and closed for lunch from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Patients must phone the clinic to make an Appointment. The appointments will be booked on a day-to-day basis. Please remember when booking your appointment that there will, on most occasions, be only one physician working, office staff has been reduced and the appointment times will be limited.
For those patients requiring refills for their LONG-TERM medications we will be holding a Drop in Group – “Refill Clinic” on Wednesday afternoons, from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.. Patients do not require an appointment for this group. Please note the Wednesday evening Group Appointments at 5:30 p.m.have been suspended until further notice.
If you have an Emergency and are unable to get an appointment at the clinic, you will need to go to Stuart Lake Hospital where you will be assessed by a nurse.
