When you need to see a doctor on the same day or the next, medical consultation services are available.
If You Do Not Have a Family Doctor, or if Your Family Doctor is Not Available
Some Medical Clinics or GMFs provide medical consultations on the same or next day. To see a doctor immediately, consult the online tool: Finding a Resource Offering Medical Consultation On The Same or Next Day page.
You can also search for available appointments with a doctor at the following Clinics: Clinique MédiGo, Clinique Familiale de Hull, OmniClinique de l’Outaouais. Find the full list of Medical Clinics and Family Medicine Groups (Groupes de médecines familiale [GMF]) on the CISSS de l’Outaouais website.
Have you registered for a Family Doctor? To find a family doctor who is accepting new patients, you can add your name to the Québec Government’s centralized online tool: Guichet d’accès à un médecin de famille / Québec Family Doctor Finder (GAMF).
Consider visiting a Winter Clinic.
Winter Clinics have been offered in the past few years, and may be offered again in 2021 for non-urgent health care or to get psychosocial help (i.e., flu symptoms, gastroenteritis and other conditions). These Winter Clinics offer increased medical services for the entire population, irrespective of whether or not people are registered with a family doctor or what their health condition is. These Winter Clinics are open in the evenings and on weekends.
If You Have a Family Doctor
Contact the clinic or Family Medicine Group (GMF) where you normally see your doctor to know if consultations on the same or next day are available. If your doctor or another physician from their group cannot see you, it is possible that your clinic or GMF refer you to another clinic where you can be received.
You can verify if consultations on the same or next day are available by searching the name of your clinic or GMF on the Finding a Resource page.
