South Bruce Grey Health Centre’s (SBGHC) Durham site Laboratory is currently experiencing a higher than normal volume of patients due to the closure of the Durham Medical Clinic specimen collection service.

 

Patients who have previously had their blood taken at the Durham Medical Clinic are now being directed to the hospital for collection. As a result, wait times have increased for out-patients due to the high volume of patients.

 

SBGHC administration is working to make the necessary adjustments for service provision to ensure reasonable wait times and a positive experience for patients visiting the Laboratory.

 

“SBGHC is not funded to provide out-patient collections, however, we do not want the community to be disadvantaged by not having local lab access,” explains Paul Rosebush, SBGHC President and CEO. “In the coming months we will be working with a variety of stakeholders to develop a sustainable lab service plan for the community.”

 

Patients coming to the hospital for outpatient collections are reminded that they must register upon arrival before presenting at the Laboratory. Out-patient sample collection is also available through CML HealthCare, a private provider located in Hanover.
