Choose the Right Care at the Right Place
“Choose the right care at the right place.”
Let's reduce the reliance on the hospital for non-urgent emergency care.
For most medical problems and health concerns, call your family doctor first. Your family doctor knows you and your medical history. Same-day urgent appointments are available.
Family doctor not available?
Check medimap.ca for White Rock-South Surrey walk-in clinic wait times and hours.
Trusted health advice?
Call 8-1-1, HealthLinkBC, available 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Speak with a representative who will help you find health information and services, or connect you with a nurse for health advice, a dietician for nutrition information, or a pharmacist for medication advice.
Urgent medication refill?
Speak with your pharmacist. Your pharmacist may be able to provide an emergency refill of your prescription, including medications for chronic conditions. Contact your pharmacist for minor issues that might be managed with over-the-counter medications.
Critical or life threatening condition?
Call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest emergency room. Hospital emergency rooms are not the place to go for common illnesses or minor injuries.
