The Calgary Foothills Primary Care Network is a group of more than 450 family doctors who work with teams of other health professionals to offer patients the best in primary health care. Our PCN serves more than 379,000 patients in north Calgary and Cochrane. Together with Alberta Health Services, we offer round-the-clock care.

We work to achieve better health outcomes for our patients. We believe we can make a difference.

Family doctors and Primary Care Networks

Family doctors are uniquely trained to care for patients as a whole person. Unlike other physicians who specialize in treating a particular condition or part of the body, family doctors take care of their patients’ everyday health care needs, across the span of their lives.

Family doctors regularly:

  • Diagnose and treat acute and chronic (longer-term) illnesses
  • Offer health screenings and counselling on lifestyle changes to prevent illness
  • Refer patients to specialists for the treatment of particular health conditions. (Family doctors will guide the process and continue to coordinate all aspects of a patient’s care.)

Primary care is the first point of contact most people have with the health system. It can be provided by family physicians and other health professionals, including nurses, dietitians, mental health professionals, pharmacists and therapists.

Alberta Health Services also provides a range of primary care services. These include laboratory and x-ray services, home care and immunization programs.
