Knowing where to go will help you receive better health care, sooner.

This page is designed to help you determine the right health-care service for you.  If you have any questions or need more help, you can call Health Links - Info Santé 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.

Doctor or clinic
Your family doctor or primary care clinic is your medical home where most of your health issues can, and should, be addressed. You should always try to seek care for non-emergency issues with your family doctor or nurse practitioner first.

See your doctor or walk-in-clinic for things like:

  • minor illnesses, flu, rashes or infections
  • diagnosis and specialist referral
  • ongoing management of health conditions and preventative care
  • prescriptions, vaccinations and inoculations

Walk-In Connected Care

Walk-In Connected Care Clinics (WICC) are available to the general public on a walk-in basis to meet unexpected health care needs during times when it is difficult to see your regular care provider. Walk-In Connected Care is provided by nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses; they will directly communicate and connect back to your regular care provider if required.

Urgent care
Urgent care centres are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to address urgent but not life-threatening health concerns.

See Urgent Care for things like:

  • illnesses or injuries that cannot wait for you to see your family doctor
  • fevers, flu symptoms, rashes or infections
  • dehydration
  • cuts that won't stop bleeding
  • injured limb that might be broken or sprained
  • any other urgent, but not life-threatening, conditions

Urgent care centres are able to provide services not available in many doctors’ offices, such as stitches and casts, but are not equivalent to emergency departments.

Urgent care centres help conserve emergency department resources for more serious, life-threatening conditions. Patients are seen based on their medical need, not order of arrival.

Emergency
Emergency departments in acute care hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address the most serious and life-threatening health issues.

Call 911 or go to emergency for issues such as:

  • stroke/facial weakness/ extremity weakness
  • heart attack/chest pain or tightness
  • unable to wake/unconscious
  • sudden onset of severe headache or confusion
  • seizure and/or severe head injury
  • major assault such as stabbings or shootings
  • severe difficulty breathing or trouble speaking

If your issue is not life-threatening, you may wait longer at an emergency department because more serious cases will be given priority.
