An Urgent and Primary Care Centre is not an emergency department – it can not treat people with serious illnesses or life-threatening conditions. If you have a health emergency that requires immediate care, call 9-1-1 or go to your hospital emergency department right away.
Services at Urgent Primary Care Centres vary depending on the location, but you can be treated for a number of urgent health concerns such as:
- Minor pain including sore throats and earaches
- Minor injuries including sprains and small cuts needing stitches
- Minor fevers, infections and upset stomach
- Sexual health
- Mental health including anxiety and mild to moderate depression
