Martensville Collective Health Provides Weekly Walk-In Option

by guest

Martensville Collective Health and Wellness (MCHW) has some exciting news for the community. Not only will they be offering flu vaccines available by appointment beginning Wednesday, October 11th, but they are re-opening after-hours walk-in, which kicked off on Tuesday, October 10th.

This process will be launched as a trial run, with some tweaks made to the previous processes. “We hope this means that we can offer a consistent service that is sustainable for us and for you. We have hired and trained new staff to provide support and we appreciate your patience as they continue to learn in this new environment,” MCHW stated via their social media announcement.

The walk-in clinic will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5pm-8:30pm and will, as best as they are able, consist of two doctors for each shift. Registration for walk-in appointments will begin at 4:45pm and will continue until 8:30pm and will be in-person only.

“The intent is to provide service for minor or urgent issues. This is not the right time or place for regular check-ups, insurance forms, drivers medical, etc. and such requests may be refused at the direction of the physicians on shift.”

If you have symptoms consistent with a cold or upper respiratory tract infection, such as, fever, cough, sore throat, etc, you will be asked to wear a mask when visiting the clinic.

Wait times will not be provided at this time, although they may be available in the future once the system is set in place with staff.

There will be zero tolerance for any abuse towards staff or physicians and phones may not be answered when staff are busy with clients, so the public is reminded that it is possible that you will not get through on phones until the next morning.
In situations of inclement weather conditions, the walk-in hours may my modified or closed.

“We are very thankful that we are once again in a position to offer this service to our community and we look forward to evaluating and improving on the process in the weeks and months ahead. We are so grateful for the support of this community and we are excited to be able to provide after-hours walk in as our way to give back.”
