The GAP adds new consultation services for people without a family doctor in the Laurentians

Nurse Marie-Eve Lemieux assesses Mrs. Kathryne Sanz, the first patient in the GAP nursing consultation service, at the Sainte-Thérèse office.

The Frontline Access Desk (GAP) of the Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS ) des Laurentides announced that it is improving  the services offered to people without a family doctor by adding consultations with nurses and social workers in the region.

Depending on the need and the assessment of the person’s state of health, the GAP may refer the person to one of the available professionals whose services are in addition to the medical consultations already offered since this summer in the region. This diversified consultation offer makes it possible to direct patients to the right professional in order to stabilize or improve various specific health problems.

For Ms. Rosemonde Landry, President and CEO of the CISSS des Laurentides, this new and improved service will make it possible to concretely improve access to care and services for the population of the Laurentians. “It is important to us that people without a family doctor have access to services that

meet their needs. Since each situation is unique, it is very good news that we can offer consultations with various health and social services professionals,”said Ms. Landry.

People without a family doctor can reach the GAP by dialing 811, option 3. The single 811 number is an easy access to all telephone consultation services, free and confidential.
