COVID SCREENING & IN-CLINIC APPOINTMENTS

The Manotick Medical Centre (MMC) continues to respond to developments of COVID-19 and we are taking measures to protect our patients, staff, physicians and our community. As the situation changes our policies and booking guidelines have been evolving to keep in line with current recommendations by the Ministry of Health and Ottawa Public Health.

Our in-clinic activity continues to be monitored by our front reception team, therefore, please do no visit the clinic in person unless you have been directed by a member of our team to do so. Should you require medical attention outside our normal hours including our on-call weekend hours (9:45 am until 12:45 pm) please call the Family Health Nurse (Telehealth Advisory Service) at 1-866-553-7205.

As we continue to respond to ongoing developments of COVID-19, patients who require care during our weekend clinic hours are invited to call the clinic at 613-692-2571 (option #2) to book a Telephone Appointment for same day. Our phone lines will be answered on both Saturday and Sunday between 9:45 am until 12:45 noon.

HOW WILL PHONE/VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS WORK?

If you call for an appointment our reception staff will indicate that in person or a telephone visit is appropriate. If you have previously booked an office appointment you may receive a phone call to transition to a telephone visit. Your telephone number will be confirmed for the appointment time.

In order for your physician to facilitate care you must be located in Canada, otherwise, your OHIP coverage is invalid. The Ministry of Health recommends that Ontarians travelling abroad are always encouraged to purchase the appropriate travel insurance coverage in the event emergency health and doctor services are needed out of country. Many Ontarians already have travel health insurance through their workplace plans or credit cards. More information can be found here -> https://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/programs/ohip/outofcountry/travellers.aspx
