Our walk-in clinic provides 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 for a non urgent issue. Centrally located on the University of Ottawa campus, we are especially convenient for individuals who work or live downtown as we provide easy access to healthcare in a clean, modern and friendly environment.
How to Access
New protocol: until further notice, patients are not to present at the clinic without an appointment. Please call our clinic at 613-564-3950 to book a telephone appointment with one of our health care providers. If after the consultation, the provider determines that you need to be seen in person we’ll schedule another appointment for you at the Walk-in clinic.
Patients can get advice, assessment and treatment for minor illnesses and injuries including infection and rashes, emergency contraception, stomach upsets, cuts and bruises, and skin complaints.
