Primary Health Care

Program Description: 

At the Anne Johnston Health Station, we believe in a client-centered, multi-disciplinary approach to primary health care. This means that our clients are at the centre of any planning and decision making about their treatment and/or care. Our team of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, chiropodists and attendant care work closely together. They provide the best information and guidance to our clients and support them in the decisions they make about their health care. The care provided is confidential. The primary health care team encourages clients to make use of the health promotion programs both here at the Anne Johnston Health Station and in the community.

Primary health care refers to basic, everyday health care. Primary health care could be visiting the doctor, nurse or nurse practitioner, talking to a dietitian, or getting education on things like diabetes. It also can involve counselling and care coordination. It is usually your first encounter with a health care provider when you need care or advice.

The Anne Johnston Health Station is a barrier free, fully accessible environment and provides accessible primary health care services for people with physical disabilities living in the City of Toronto. We integrate an accessibility positive approach to care by providing the following:

  • Knowledgeable clinical and program staff
  • Accessible pap testing for women with physical disabilities
  • Full-time onsite attendant care services
  • Height adjustable examination tables
  • Ceiling lifts
  • Fully accessible and barrier free facility
