Interior Health is advising Trail and area residents that the Waneta Primary Care Clinic remains open, with nurse practitioners (NPs) Lori Verigin and Chelsea Van Vliet providing day-to-day primary care for local patients.
NPs have a scope of practice similar to a family practice physician, and provide comprehensive holistic and patient-centred clinical care that includes the diagnosis and management of disease/illness, prescribing medications, ordering/interpreting laboratory and diagnostic tests, and initiating referrals to specialists.
Interior Health would like to thank previous clinic owner and physician, Dr. Blair Stanley, for his years of service to Trail and area patients and wish him well with his new practice in Vernon.
In addition to supporting ongoing care for patients who have been seeing Dr. Stanley, the clinic will start accepting new patients on Jan. 14.
Individuals who are looking for a primary care provider can stop by the clinic on the upper floor of the Waneta Plaza Mall (242 - 8100 Highway 3B) or call the clinic at 250-368-0053.
