New Primary Access clinic opens in Montague

People in Kings County without a primary care provider now have a local location to access primary care services. A primary care access clinic will open in Montague on Thursday, February 8 through the Kings Primary Care Network.  

Since 2020, people without a primary care provider have been able to access virtual care through the Health PEI Virtual Care program. However, some people who log in need to see a care provider in person, because of the nature of their medical concern. 

Patients who need to be seen in person will receive a referral from the Virtual Care provider for an in-person appointment at the Primary Care Access Care Clinic. This additional clinic in Montague will allow patients to be assessed by a primary care provider who can offer services such as prescriptions and referrals.  

The Primary Care Access Clinic in Montague will operate once a week, with additional clinic times added based on demand, staffing, and space availability.

To get access to virtual care and the primary care access clinics, people without a regular primary care provider are asked to join the PEI Patient Registry and then go to the Register with Maple. Patients of some recently closed family doctor practices may have already been added to the virtual care platform and do not need to register. To see if this applies to you, please visit: Information for patients of closed and temporarily closed practices

In addition to the virtual care and access clinic options, Islanders who do not have a regular primary care provider are encouraged to visit Health PEI Access to Care to learn about more health care services that are available to you.
