Have some Questions?

Our regular hours can differ by locations. Most clinics are open Monday – Friday until 9 pm with 11 am – 5 pm weekend and holiday hours. You can see regular open hours on the locations page.  We will also keep you informed of clinic closures and reduced clinic hours with daily updates on the  website.

We do not make appointments, simply walk in to be seen at any of our clinics. Our Walk-In Clinics are first come, first serve. Depending on the volume of patients, we may stop registering before end of each shift because we are at capacity.

You can visit one of our clinics closest to you. If the hour is late, please confirm by phone before coming in.

Nova Scotians who need a family physician or nurse practitioner can now call 811 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, or visit, to be added to a provincial wait list. The list is managed by the Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA).

Individuals on the wait list will be contacted when a spot becomes available. Those who joined a local wait list through NSHA before Nov. 1, 2016, have been added to the new list they maintain their order of priority based on the date of their original call.

Yes, with your permission we will fax a copy of your walk-in visit to your family physician. As well, if we order any investigations during your walk-in encounter we will request that a copy of the result be sent to your family physician. This allows for good continuity in your medical care by keeping your family physician informed of any medical treatments that are initiated at one of our clinics.
