How Does It Work?

An Urgent Primary Care Centre (UPCC) is a new kind of medical centre. It provides a one-stop location for patients to receive care for non-emergency health concerns. It can also provide access to a family doctor or nurse practitioner to patients who do not have a family doctor.

 

What Can They Treat?

Patients Can Seek Treatment for Issues Such As:

  • Sore throats
  • Ear aches
  • Upset stomach
  • Sprains & strains
  • Small cuts needing stitches
  • Fevers and infections

Services Patients Can Also Access at the Urgent and Primary Care Centre:

  • Appointment with a family physician
  • Counselling services
  • Prescription renewals (no medication dispensing on site)
  • Referrals to specialists and other community services

 

How Do I Use It?

The Urgent and Primary Care Centre is for non life-threatening illnesses when you are not able to see your family doctor or visit a clinic within 12 - 14 hours.

For non-emergency health concerns please call your family doctor first or visit a walk-in clinic. Your family doctor may have same day bookings available. Visit Medimap.ca for wait times and appointments available at walk-in clinics in your community.

For emergencies like broken bones, chest pains or head injuries please visit the emergency room or call 9-1-1.
