Primary Care Network

The Primary Care Network is an Alberta-based initiative designed to improve and better coordinate access to primary health care through multidisciplinary collaboration. The physicians at Cura Family Practice and Meadows Maternity are active members of the Calgary West Central (CWC) Primary Care Network. Through affiliation with the PCN, patients gain access to several valuable and free-of-charge services. A full list of services offered is available online at http://www.cwcpcn.com.

Some services currently available through affiliation with the CWC PCN include:

  • Access to the CWC Primary Care Centre with a seven-day-a-week, same day appointment service for patients in immediate need who are referred by their PCN family physician (see below)
  • Access to specialized staff, which may include behavioral health consultants, chronic disease and geriatric nurses, and patient care coordinators.

CWC Primary Care Centre

The CWC Primary Care Centre (CWC PCC) at Westbrook is operated by the Calgary West Central Primary Care Network (CWC PCN) and provides several services:

  • The CWC PCC offers enhanced access with a seven-day-a-week, same day appointment service for patients in immediate need who are referred by their PCN family physician. Available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. on weekends and holidays, this referral service provides an alternative to the walk-in system or a visit to the ER. Instead, patients unable to see their PCN member physician can receive an appointment at the centrally located clinic. On evenings and weekends patients can also call Health Link (see below) to self-refer if their physician's practice is closed. This service is by appointment only and is available 365 days a year to patients whose family physician is a member of the CWC PCN.

Health Link

  • If you have a health concern for yourself or a child, you can call Health Link by dialing 811 for quick and easy advice from a registered nurse 24/7. They will ask questions, assess symptoms and determine the best care for you.
  • Albertans can now receive specialized dementia advice through Health Link. This service helps individuals and caregivers living with dementia, including those with Alzheimer’s disease .
  • For out-of-province or internet phone users, call 1-866-408-5465 (LINK).
  • Be advised that Health Link is not a substitute for calling 911 in emergency situations.

Crisis Line - Calgary

The crisis is line is a telephone line that is available 24 hours a day for people to call when they are in distress, and need someone to talk to. The number is: 403-266-HELP (4357)

The following is from the crisis line website:

  • “We are available to talk anytime – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Crisis doesn’t take time off, so neither do we. When you make a call to Distress Centre, you will always get an answer, an open mind and a caring ear.
  • If it's too hard to say out loud and you'd prefer to talk to about your problems with someone online, then our online chat or email support might be for you. Chat is available from 5pm-10pm daily and is accessed from our home page. Emails are responded to within 24-48 hours (not an immediate response) so if the issue is urgent, please call the crisis line. However, if you can wait for a response and would prefer to email, contact us at help@distresscentre.com.”
