Travel Coordination

One question that is frequently asked whether patients are already in Ottawa or if they are booked to come; is how do they get here? Once an appointment has been booked for a patient, our team sends an appointment sheet to the transportation team in Iqaluit and if applicable the Community Health Center. The appointment sheet lists the patient’s demographic and appointment information including any instructions/ preparation to be done for the appointment. From there, the team in the North takes on the responsibility of notifying the patient of their appointment and booking their flight to Ottawa.
