More about walk-in clinics

Generally, walk-in clinics provide medical care for people who do not have a family doctor or who do have one and are unable to reach them.

In general, you can see a nurse or doctor, to get advice, assessment and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries such as cuts, bruises, minor infections, sprains and skin complaints.

Walk-in clinics provide care for patients with non-urgent medical issues.

They typically receive patients on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Appointments at walk-in clinics can be made on the same day or, sometimes, earlier.

Please keep in mind that walk-in clinics do not assign you a family physician or a nurse practitioner.

Depending on where you live, availability and services vary.
