Walk-in Clinics

Should I go to a walk-in clinic? 

Walk-in clinics provide non-urgent care at locations across the province.

  • If you’re sick, call your family doctor or nurse practitioner (primary care provider) first. 
  • If you don't have a family doctor, visit a walk-in clinic nearest you or if you're registered for virtual healthcare, book an appointment online with Maple.
  • If you need mental health or addiction support, visit an Open Access Counselling location.
  • If you need sexual health, pregnancy, or reproductive services, visit Sexual Health, Options, and Reproductive Services

Your local pharmacist can also assess, prescribe treatments and renew prescriptions for many common ailments without an appointment. Learn more

For more health care options, see Find Health Care.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department. If you are unsure what to do, call 811 for advice from a registered nurse.

Where can I find a walk-in clinic?

Walk-in clinics are offered by Health PEI and by private operators. Clinics serve patients on a first-come, first-serve basis. Clinics may close early when the maximum patient capacity has been reached, or if there are no patients waiting to be seen.

Most clinics recommend you arrive (or book with Skip the Waiting Room) at least one hour before the clinic opens.

How can I get a family doctor in PEI? 

If you don’t have a family doctor or nurse practitioner, you can join a wait list to be assigned one. This wait list is called the Provincial Patient Registry. Once you are on this wait list, you will be invited to join Maple to access free virtual health care services online.
