Welcome to the Owen Sound Family Health Team

Advisory to Patients, Community Partners and Staff

The trust and care of patients is our priority and all patients should be assured that a recent public report of a survey of some of our employees in no way affects our ability to offer exceptional patient care. The survey was reported by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). First and most importantly, we want the patients of the Owen Sound Family Health Team to continue to have the confidence that they have always had, and for them to know that they will continue to receive the best possible care from our entire professional staff.  

That being said, we take this matter very seriously.

Get Your Flu Shot!

It’s time to get your annual flu shot. It is recommended that ALL patients six months of age and older get the flu vaccine every year. 

Influenza is a contagious respiratory disease that can lead to serious complications, hospitalization, or even death. Young children – especially those under age five – are among those at highest risk of serious illness from the flu. 

Anyone can get the flu, and vaccination is the most effective way to protect you and your family.  

Remember that it takes about two weeks after the shot to develop protection against the flu so, it’s important to get it at the start of flu season.

If you have had a recent visit to the Owen Sound Family Health Team, we invite you to take part in a survey. Your responses to the questions on this survey will help us learn more about your health care experiences and how we can best support your health care needs.
