Resource to Help Locate Walk-in Clinics in BC
Medimap is a Vancouver-based company that is using technology and partnering with health care providers to make clinic wait times easily accessible for patients. Their mission is to improve access to care for Canadians and contribute towards an overall better patient experience. The website allows you to search for wait times at nearby walk-in clinics to get faster access to care. You simply enter your city or address. Participating clinics will be listed in order of wait times. The website also advises people to contact their family doctor as the first course of action before visiting a walk-in clinic, as a family doctor is the most familiar with a person's medical history. They also caution people that the listed wait times are only estimates and can change rapidly. Walk-in clinics should not be used for medical emergencies. In these cases, a person should call 9-1-1.
