The Fort St. John Medical Clinic posted a message on its website Tuesday that it’s closing its Walk in Clinic as of April 30th.
It says, with the decreasing number of doctors in the community, and an increase in patients without a family doctor, it’s becoming extremely difficult to manage the large number of unattached patients.
Starting May 1st, the clinic will be offering ‘Same Day Access’ for those patients who have a family doctor working in the clinic.
The centre is also changing the hours it operates, beginning on the 1st, from 9am ’til Noon and 1 ’til 5pm for appointments and 9am ’til 11:30 and 1:30 ’til 4pm for the Same Day Access Clinic.
Same day access will also be available Saturdays between 9am and 11:30pm.
