What is primary care?
Primary care refers to the services you receive for your basic, everyday health needs. It is your first point of contact within the health care system and is provided to you by your family doctor and other health professionals.
What is a Primary Care Network?
Primary Care Networks are a made-in-Alberta approach to ensure you receive the right care, from the right health professional, at the right time. Led by family doctors, these Networks are improving access to, and better co-ordinating, care for Albertans.
A Network can be one clinic with many family doctors and other health professionals (i.e. nurse practitioners, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers and mental health workers), or many family doctors and other health professionals in several clinics in a geographic area.
