Dear patients,

Effective today, to try and reduce possible risk of COVID-19, the Beamsville Medical Centre Family Health Team will not be doing any routine appointments until at least Monday April 13th, 2020.  Most other appointments will likely be done over the phone although, at the discretion of the physician, visits in person may still be able to be scheduled.  This will also include most injections done through our injection clinic.  Thanks for your understanding during this difficult time. We continue to remain open to try and answer your questions and deal with your medical concerns.

Sincerely, the Beamsville Medical Centre FHT
