More Co-operation Planned Between Provost, Consort Health Systems
Collaboration among doctors and other health care professionals in Provost and Consort has resulted in a primary care network (PCN) involving East Central Health and David Thompson Health regions.

Primary health care is the first contact a person has with the health system, such as a physician, hospital or health centre, home care, mental health or public health.

Primary care networks are arrangements among physicians and their regional health authority to provide a comprehensive list of primary care services to a group of patients.

“We are very pleased to be working with Consort physicians to get the Provost-Consort PCN up and running,” said Dr. Deon Erasmus, for Provost physicians. “While we look forward to finding better ways to serve our patients, some things won’t change—we will continue to put patients first.”

“We are excited about working with Provost physicians on this new approach to health care delivery,” said Dr. Gerhard Malherbe, who represents Consort physicians. “Our focus will be to improve the services we provide to our patients through the three key aims of primary care – streamlining access to health care services, improving the quality of service and using a team approach to providing care.”

Each primary care network is aimed at serving the unique health care needs of the population it serves.
Highlights of the Provost-Consort PCN include:
• Chronic disease management – Care for patients with complex health problems requiring follow-up, such as diabetes or heart disease will be co-ordinated by a team which could include the family doctor, nursing staff, physiotherapists, dietitians and pharmacists.

• Healthy living – A team approach will also be used as physicians continue efforts with other health workers and community groups to prevent illness by promoting active lifestyles and healthy diets.
