You will be asked the reason for your visit to ensure we are able to treat your concern. If we are able to help you, you will be screened for acute viral respiratory infection and given an approximate appointment time.

Upon arrival, have your health card and a list of medications ready. Care at these clinics will be provided by a doctor or nurse practitioner.

This is a temporary service to provide an appropriate primary care setting for an increased number of people experiencing mild or moderate health concerns.

This clinic is not a substitute for your primary care provider (doctor or nurse practitioner). However, there are times when you may not be able to see your primary care provider, or you do not have a primary care provider. Your patience is greatly appreciated as we aim to provide you the best possible care. The clinic can only address non-urgent, low-acuity health issues and is not an emergency service. See a list of types of concerns below if you are not sure where to go.
