Genetic Counselling


To maximize efficiencies, a regionalized model of care has been adopted for Genetic Services in the North. The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit will no longer be delivering Genetic services, and instead, Health Sciences North will be providing these services for patients within our catchment area.

In an attempt to minimize travel to Sudbury for service, Health Sciences North, Genetic Counsellors and a Geneticist will meet with patients either virtually or in-person at our Health Units Oak St. location.

The NBPSDHU is working collaboratively with local health care providers and Health Sciences North to provide a seamless transition for existing patients and future referrals.

It is important to note that this change to the service delivery model is not a result of the recent provincial budget announcement that indicated 35 health units would be regionalized to 10. The new model was deemed as a necessary step to recruiting and retaining qualified staff in the north.
