Shared Medical Appointments

Physicians and other healthcare professionals are always seeking better ways to offer access to high quality care to our patients. That’s why Hackenthorpe Medical Centre are planning to pilot shared medical appointments (SMAs) with some of our patients who have chronic obstructive airways disase.

SMAs offer an innovative, interactive approach to healthcare that brings patients with common needs together with one or more healthcare providers. While an individual appointment typically lasts 15 to 30 minutes, a shared appointment is 90 minutes long, allowing participants to spend more time with the healthcare team.
