Walk-in clinics provide medical care for people who do not have a family doctor or have one and are unable to reach them.

You can see a nurse or doctor, often without an appointment at a walk-in clinic, and get advice, assessment and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries such as cuts, bruises, minor infections, sprains and skin complaints.


May vary by location:

  • diagnosis and treatment of minor illnesses and injuries
  • prescriptions
  • referrals
