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.
