Frequently Asked Questions

After-Hours Care

We recognize that urgent medical issues can arise outside of our regular office hours.

How do I know if the issue is urgent?

Examples of urgent medical concerns can include a new injury, chest pain, difficulty breathing, new abdominal pain, urinary tract infections, a sick child OR more that 48 hours of fever/vomiting/ diarrhea in adults

Non-urgent concerns, such as follow-ups, prescription renewals, form completion and reviewing test results should be booked during regular clinic times with your primary family physician

Telephone Health Advisory Service

While our physicians do reserve same-day appointments for urgent medical needs, you may not know if your issue can wait until the clinic opens. The Telephone Health Advisory Service (THAS) offers TW FHT patients after-hours telephone health advice.
THAS is available outside regular clinic hours at 1-866-553-7205.

Maintain the circle of care. Please always avoid walk-in clinics.
