Until your OHIP is in place the cost of some medical services may be covered. You may be required to pay for other services like hospital fees, ambulance transportation, medications, routine eye exams and physiotherapy etc.
Appointments for the medical clinic may be booked by calling 613-820-2001. If you have an urgent or acute need, a nurse will speak to you by phone to determine how to best meet your needs. For a first appointment you will be asked to complete registration paperwork.
If you are having a medical emergency, please go to the nearest hospital or call 9-1-1.
Appointments are required for renewals of narcotics and/or completion of letters or forms.
We try to be here when you need us and ask that you attend scheduled appointments. If you do not attend appointments the PQCHC medical clinic may no longer be able to offer you service.
To cancel or rebook your appointment please call us 24 hours in advance at 613-820-2001. If arriving late to your appointment results in you missing more than half of your appointment time, you will not be seen that day.
We provide language interpretation services to our clinic clients for medical appointments. Please let the receptionist know if you require interpretation when booking your appointment.
Medications are refilled at your appointments. If you have not done so, please ask your pharmacist to fax the request to our clinic. Please allow five working days for all medication renewals.
Privacy and Confidentiality
If at any time you have questions or concerns about personal health information, the use of this information or the protection of your privacy within PQCHC, please do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with your service provider.
