It is recommeded that you book an appointment to see a physician. You can book an appointment by calling 519-884-0710 ext 3146 or you can speak with the receptionist in Health Services. During the fall and winter terms there are a limited amount of walk-in slots available for urgent or unpredictable concerns such as a urinary tract infection or acute illness. These openings are filled on a first come first served basis and you will be assessed by a nurse first. There is no guarantee you will be seen and these slots are generally filled by early afternoon so it is advisable to present to Health Services as early in the day as possible. These same day appointments are not for predictable issues such as physicals or medication renewals. You need to book an appointment for these issues.
If you require urgent health care after hours or on weekends you can go to a walk-in clinic or the emergency department of either Grand River or St. Mary’s General Hospital or you can get 24 hr advise from a registered nurse by calling 1-866-797-0000 or visit Telehealth @ http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/programs/telehealth/
