What is considered ‘acute’?
A condition that comes up suddenly is acute â€“ including but not limited to a sore throat, ear/eye infection, rash, animal bite etc.
Chronic conditions (diabetes, high blood pressure, medication refills, form completions or annual physicals) are not considered urgent and should be managed through routine office appointments.
I work during the day; can I wait for the After-Hours Clinic to see my doctor?
No.Â these clinics are intended for urgent/ acute cases only.Â For regular office visits, you must call and schedule an appointment with your doctor.
Can I see my own doctor for the After-Hours Clinic?
Not necessarily, if something requires immediate attention and your own doctor cannot see you â€“ you will be offered the After-Hours Clinic regardless of which doctor is working.
I donâ€™t have a doctor; can I see a doctor in the After-Hours Clinic?
No. Unfortunately, this service is for AFHT rostered patients only.
