Manitoba’s QuickCare clinics are there to meet your unexpected health care needs even when some other clinics may be closed. QuickCare clinics are staffed by nurse practitioners and registered nurses who can help prevent, diagnose and treat minor health issues.
QuickCare clinics may save you a trip to an emergency room or having to wait to see your regular provider.
Visits can be booked by phone or can be scheduled in person. Clinic hours are posted on the websites listed below.
Here are some health issues that are treated at a QuickCare clinic:
The QuickCare team includes registered nurses and nurse practitioners. Registered nurses provide a wide range of care, including helping you with minor wounds, viral infections, insect bites, bumps, bruises and sprains. Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced education and training and provide the full range of primary care services, including prescribing medications and ordering diagnostic tests.
QuickCare clinics are open days, evenings, weekends and holidays to help you access the health care you need when you need it.
Anyone can visit a QuickCare clinic, but they’re not a replacement for regular visits with your health care provider. They are designed to help you access health care you need, when your regular provider is unavailable or at a time that is more convenient for you. You can request that information about your visit to a QuickCare clinic is shared with your regular health care provider in order to keep your medical records accurate and up-to-date and to ensure continuity of care. If you don’t have a regular health care provider when you visit one of these clinics, staff can also help you look for one, or you can register on-line at manitoba.ca/health/familydoctorfinder
These clinics are designed to meet the unexpected healthcare needs of you and your family during times when most other clinics are closed. The clinics are typically open weekdays as well as evenings and weekends to improve accessibility to primary care services. QuickCare Clinic registered nurses and nurse practitioners treat thousands of patients each month for minor health issues, such as skin problems, stomach issues, cuts, colds and flu symptoms. Nurse practitioners in the clinics are able to order diagnostic tests and prescribe medications when needed.
QuickCare Clinics focus on continuity of care and the patient’s overall health needs providing communication back to the patient’s regular primary care provider as well as working to connect patients with additional resources available to them, such as Family Doctor Finder and other health-care professionals.
