The Sherwood Park – Strathcona County Primary Care Network is a group of health care professionals and administrative staff who work with family physicians and their clinic staff. Our caring team provides education and support for managing chronic diseases and mental health concerns, while increasing access to specialists and services within the local community.
We are currently looking for a Consultant Psychiatrist to join our team on a flexible, contract basis. The intent of the SPPCN Psychiatric Consultation Service is to provide timely access to psychiatric consultation and advice for family physicians and their patients in conjunction with members of the SPPCN Mental Health Team. SPPCN consultant psychiatrists see patients virtually and in person and work out of our Sherwood Park and Fort Saskatchewan offices.
The Consultation Service typically involves seeing a patient on referral for a single consultation visit, making treatment recommendations to the referring SPPCN physician and, where appropriate, facilitating the patient’s referral on to community-based or tertiary mental health services, with the assistance of the SPPCN mental health and clinical administrative teams.
This opportunity offers excellent flexible clinic hours that can be arranged, to suit the right individual and their current practice. The SPPCN provides office space, computer equipment, EMR access, PPE and administrative scheduling/support at no cost.
SPPCN Hours include:
Daytime: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8:00am – 4:00pm
Evenings: Tuesday, Thursday 8:00am – 8:00pm
