Blue River residents to visit doctor by videoconference

Beginning in November, Dr. John Soles will be offering Telehealth appointments to Blue River patients

Blue River residents will soon be able to consult with Clearwater-based Dr. John Soles via Telehealth video-conference.

Editor, The Times:

Beginning in November, Dr. John Soles will be offering Telehealth appointments to Blue River patients using videoconferencing equipment, enabling patients to stay in Blue River without having to travel to see a doctor. During the development and testing stage of this service, one clinic will be held each month.

Patients who have a booked Telehealth appointment will go to the Blue River Health Centre 15 minutes prior to their appointment. They will be checked in by the nurse and brought to the videoconferencing Telehealth technology to connect with Dr. Soles who will be in Clearwater. They will still be able to hear and see him as if they were in the same room.

Telehealth Clinic appointments will improve our existing services to Blue River patients. There will be less time and travel involved, particularly important during the winter season.

If you are interested in this opportunity and wonder if you would be eligible, please call the Clearwater Medical Centre at 250.674.3319.
