QuickCare Clinics are there to meet the unexpected health care needs of you and your family during times when most other clinics are closed. These clinics, staffed by registered nurses and nurse practitioners, diagnose and treat minor health issues. They can save you a trip to an emergency room or having to wait for regular clinic hours.
Here are some health issues that could be treated at a QuickCare clinic:
If you aren’t sure if you should go to a QuickCare clinic or an emergency room, call Health Links - Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or toll-free at 1-888-315-9257.
QuickCare clinics are open days, evenings, and weekends to help you access the health care you need when you need it.
You can visit a QuickCare Clinic at any of these locations:
QuickCare Clinics provide walk-in services as well as by appointment during evenings and weekends.
Anyone can visit a QuickCare clinic, though they’re not a replacement for regular visits with your health care provider. However, they are designed to help you access health care you need, when your regular provider may be closed or at a time that is more convenient to you. Information about your visit to a QuickCare clinic can be shared with your regular health care provider to keep your medical records accurate and up-to-date. 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.
QuickCare clinics are part of a broader provincial plan to ensure any Manitoban who wants one will have a family doctor by 2015. To do this, Manitoba Health is encouraging more doctors and nurse practitioners to work in the province while also introducing initiatives like QuickCare and mobile clinics in rural communities to offer more convenient and timely health care.
