Even during the pandemic, you can consult a health or social services professional if you feel the need or if you or a family member has a health problem or a psychosocial problem.
It is especially important to continue your health or psychosocial follow-up if you or a family member have:
- a chronic disease (e.g., diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, degenerative disease, etc.);
- a mental health condition (e.g., depression, anxiety disorder, etc.);
- or any other disease, condition or situation that requires regular follow-up with a health or social services professional.
All primary care medical clinics admit patients whether or not they have symptoms similar to COVID-19.
You do not need to be tested to get a consultation.
If you have symptoms, it is recommended that you complete the COVID-19 Symptom Self-Assessment Tool . This self-assessment will determine whether or not you need to be tested and the procedure to follow.
To find out the various resources that you can consult if you have a health or psychosocial problem, go to the Primary care health and social services page.
Pediatric clinics have been opened in some regions of Quebec for children and youth aged 16 and under.
These clinics are located in the following regions:
They are open seven days a week and see children aged 16 and under in the following situations:
- presents or does not present symptoms associated with COVID-19. (You do not need to be tested to get a consultation);
- not registered with a family doctor or primary health care nurse practitioner (PHCNP);
- registered with a family doctor or a PHCNP, but cannot be seen by that professional within 24 to 48 hours;
- were redirected by emergency services because their health condition allowed it.
If your child is in one of these situations, you must make an appointment by calling 1-877-644-4545 to be directed to the location that best meets your needs.
If your baby under the age of three months has a fever, you must consult a doctor quickly or go to the emergency department.
When pediatric clinics are not available in your region, different resources are available to you. For further information, see the Primary care health and social services page.
The pediatric clinic service is supplementary to and supports the front-line network in regions where it was deemed necessary in the context of the fourth wave of COVI-19. Those who wish to be tested can go to a designated screening clinic. For further information, see the Testing for COVID-19 page.
