||Niverville Primary Health Care
The Niverville Medical Clinic is
proud to be part of a unique team of health professionals, called the
Niverville Primary Health Care centre. This is a special cooperation between
the town of Niverville, who had the vision and the South East Health Authority
who provided the staff. The result is a multidisciplinary team that brings
together Public health, Mental health, Home Care, Midwifery, Laboratory
services, Nurse triage, Chronic disease management with the medical clinic.
All of us have worked together to try and create a patient centered service,
housed on different floors, that seeks to look after the whole person.
We love seeing children at NMC. We also know that they can often
have special needs so don’t worry if they seem a little more noisy.
We have a play area outside the clinic which means they can play and relax
Often after a visit, we like to reward our small patients with a treat,
either a sucker or a sticker. We will usually ask you, the parent first,
if this is ok for you. Please feel free to let us know your wishes, we
do not want to contravene your wishes in anyway.
Where possible when doing embarrassing examinations, we will get the parents
to help so as to avoid mixed messages for the child
The clinic is unashamedly pro vaccination and is happy to discuss
your concerns re the current Manitoba vaccination schedule. We also recognize
individual choice and preference and will support you what ever decision
you may wish to take. We do prefer that childhood vaccinations get given
by the public health nurse, but on special occasions can accommodate these
in the clinic.
It is important that a health professional examine your child
at a regular interval during their first 2 years of life, prior to starting
kindergarten and possibly on starting middle and high school. These are
milestones in their development and it is often useful to chart these.
We are of curse very happy if you have a pediatrician whom you wish to
continue seeing. However your family physicians are very willing to look
after children and refer to pediatric specialist as required. If you have
questions then come in and we can talk about them.
