Where do I go?

Learn how to find the right health care services for you, sooner.

Every month, approximately 40% of people who visit a Winnipeg Urgent Care Centre or Emergency Department could receive the health care they need, often sooner, through a family doctor or walk-in clinic.

If you have any questions or need more help, you can call Health Links – Info Santé 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.

CLINIC OR DOCTOR

A walk-in clinic or family doctor is where most of your health care issues can, and should, be addressed. Always try to seek care for non-urgent or emergency issues through a clinic, doctor or nurse practitioner first.

See your doctor or walk-in clinic for things like:

  • minor illnesses, flu, rashes or infections
  • diagnosis and specialist referral
  • ongoing management of health conditions and preventative care
  • prescriptions, vaccinations and inoculations

Walk-In Clinic

There are more than 87 walk-in clinics in Winnipeg, many located in residential neighbourhoods. Hours vary, with some clinics being open in the evenings and on weekends.

Medimap.ca has the wait times and contact information for many Winnipeg walk-in clinics, and in some cases offers the ability to book an appointment online.

Walk-In Connected Care

Walk-In Connected Care Clinics (WICCCs) are available to the general public on a walk-in basis to meet unexpected health care needs during times when it is difficult to see your regular care provider. Walk-In Connected Care is provided by nurse practitioners, physician assistants and registered nurses; they will directly communicate and connect back to your regular care provider if required.

Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic

The team of Health Care Professionals at the Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic provide expert assessment and treatment for patients with non-life-threatening bone, joint, and soft tissue injuries such as sprains, cuts, bruises and fractures that do not require hospitalization.

These are the types of injuries you might get from a household fall, a slip on the ice, or from getting hurt playing sports.

At the Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic, they can set and cast broken bones; recommend splints, casts, braces, or crutches; clean, dress, or stitch minor wounds and burns; provide tetanus shots; and organize further testing and referrals as needed.

If you require follow-up after your initial visit, Pan Am offers a range of rehabilitation services.

Pan Am is open seven days a week. Patients can use the walk-in service or make an appointment. Patients presenting to Pan Am Minor Injury Clinic are assessed and given a return time based on their medical need. Once daily capacity has been reached, the Minor Injury Clinic accepts only urgent walk-in patients.

Do you have a child sick with cold and flu symptoms?

During respiratory virus season, your child may experience common cold/flu symptoms, such as a fever, nasal congestion, nausea, diarrhea or coughing. As long as symptoms are not emergent or urgent, they may be assessed by a primary care provider or clinic.

For more information on when to seek emergency care and when primary care is more appropriate for your child, please click here.

Still unsure of where to go? Call Health Links – Info Santé at 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.

URGENT CARE

Urgent Care Centres are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week to address urgent but not life-threatening health concerns.

See Urgent Care for things like:

  • illnesses or injuries that cannot wait for you to see your family doctor
  • fevers, flu symptoms, rashes or infections
  • dehydration
  • cuts that won’t stop bleeding
  • injured limb that might be broken or sprained
  • any other urgent, but not life-threatening, conditions

Urgent Care Centres are able to provide services not available in many doctors' offices, such as stitches and casts, but are not equivalent to Emergency Departments.

Urgent Care Centres help conserve Emergency Department resources for more serious, life-threatening conditions.

Please remember, patients at Urgent Care Centres, like at Emergency Departments, are seen based on their medical need, not order of arrival. More serious cases take priority.

EMERGENCY

Patients with potentially life-threatening conditions should immediately phone 911.

Emergency Departments in acute care hospitals are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address the most serious and life-threatening health issues.

Call 911 or go to emergency for issues such as:

  • stroke/facial weakness/ extremity weakness
  • heart attack/chest pain or tightness
  • unable to wake/unconscious
  • sudden onset of severe headache or confusion
  • seizure and/or severe head injury
  • major assault such as stabbings or shootings
  • severe difficulty breathing or trouble speaking
  • uncontrolled or severe bleeding
  • major trauma such as loss of limb
  • severe allergic reaction
  • severe burns

If your issue is not life-threatening, you may wait longer at an Emergency Department because more serious cases will be given priority.
