How do you get in to the program:
You can self-refer by calling 587-796-0765 Or obtain a referral from your Peaks to Prairies PCN family doctor.
When you self-refer consider having a friend register with you as this can provide support for positive change.
If you are already seeing a P2P PCN nurse, social worker, mental health counsellor, or exercise specialist you can ask them about a referral.
