Urgent and Primary Care Centres (UPCC) are for people with same-day, non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses when you are unable to see a family doctor or health care provider. A 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.
Sprains and strains
Cuts, wounds or skin conditions
Infections, including chest, ear and urinary tract
New or worsening pain
Less serious child illness and injury
Emotional-related issue such as low mood, anxiety or depression
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.
For life-threatening illnesses or injuries, call 911 or go the
Emergency Department to be assessed and treated immediately. This includes suspected stroke or heart attack, poisoning or overdose, major trauma, head injury with loss of consciousness, etc.
