We also see outpatients (non-overnight) after they have finished treatment for acute (short-term) infections, if they have a chronic (long-term) infection or if there are questions about immunizations.
Your child’s first visit with the team will be at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital in Saskatoon. Depending on how complicated the infection is, and whether other doctors are also involved, follow-up visits may be available through TeleHealth. TeleHealth is a secured audio/video conferencing service.
Referrals to see the infectious diseases team can be made by your family doctor, nurse practitioner or pediatrician.
Referrals can be faxed to the Pediatric Infectious Diseases clinic at 306-844-1536.
