The North Vancouver Urgent Primary Care Centre no longer offers COVID-19 testing to members of the public.
VCH operates an alternative testing site on the North Shore, located at the ICBC Claims Centre on the North Shore. If you are currently eligible for testing and have symptoms of COVID-19, you can attend this site without an appointment.
For more information about COVID-19 testing eligibility, please visit the BCCDC website.

Social Work Services: Drop-in or phone-in social work support is available to all ages at the North Vancouver UPCC. Social Workers offer support for a variety of practical, emotional, and mental health needs, and can also provide short-term counselling. All services are free and available 7 days a week, 9 a.m. ? 5 p.m. Call 604-973-1593 for more information or to self-refer.
For life-threatening illnesses or injuries, call 911 or go the Emergency Department to be assessed and treated immediately.
For health concerns, including referrals and prescription renewals, the best option is to call your primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner) first. Same-day urgent appointments are often available.
The UPCC is not intended to replace family doctors or care providers as a person's first point of contact for health concerns, nor will it replace Emergency Departments for life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Rather, it is intended to be an additional service in the community, working in conjunction with all touch points for care to provide appropriate urgent services to patients, when and where they need it.
Open evenings and weekends, seven days a week all year long, the UPCC will see patients according to urgency.
We're open 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. ? 10 p.m.
Sunday 9 a.m. ? 5 p.m.
Patients will be seen according to urgency. The last patient will be accepted approximately 1 hour before closing.
