The CSFS Primary Care program provides our community members with basic day-to-day care provided by health professionals, including family doctors, nurse practitioners, dieticians, pharmacists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, etc. We can also help patients connect with specialist services as needed. We provide medical services through a First Nations view of holistic wellness and provide numerous other holistic wellness related programs and services to complement our Primary Care medical services. Our doctors and other primary care health staff receive training on culturally relevant approaches to health care to ensure that our patients receive health services that work for their unique needs.
