COVID‑19: Medical consultation during the pandemic
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. Find out about the consultation procedures depending on your situation on the page If you need a consultation during the COVID‑19 pandemic.
Family medicine group
A family medicine group (FMG) is a group of family doctors who work together and in close collaboration with other health and social services professionals (e.g., nurse, social worker).
People who have a family doctor in the FMG in question can get a consultation and access the services offered.
Some FMGs can offer access to any clientele.
A person who goes to an FMG for a consultation can receive medical services from their own family doctor or from another doctor in the group if their family doctor is not available. All the doctors who are members of the FMG have full access to the medical records of registered patients. The person can also see a nurse, a social worker or another health professional in the FMG for follow-up services if necessary.
Aim of FMGs
The work organization in FMGs allows patients who have a family doctor to access health and social services more easily.
For doctors, this organization:
- ensures better patient management and follow-up;
- improves quality of care;
- improves access to primary care.
University family medicine group
A university family medicine group (U-FMG) is a family medicine group where patients can receive care and where residents in family medicine, students and interns in various disciplines can receive training and be supervised.
People who have a family doctor in the U-FMG in question can get a consultation there and access the services offered.
Some U-FMGs can offer access to any clientele.
A person who goes to a U-FMG for a consultation can access the same medical services and the same follow-up services as in an FMG. These services may be provided by residents in family medicine, students or interns. They can make diagnoses, write prescriptions and make recommendations. They are always supervised by doctors or qualified professionals who, as needed, also see the patients.
The work organization in U-FMGs allows patients who have a family doctor to access health and social services more easily. It also allows residents in family medicine, students and interns to receive appropriate training in a real patient management context.
A super clinic is a group of family doctors who work together and in close collaboration with other health professionals, such as nurses and social workers, to meet semi-urgent or simple urgent needs.
All clienteles can get a consultation in a super clinic:
- patients who do not have a family doctor;
- patients who are registered with a family doctor in the super clinic in question;
- patients who are registered with a family doctor who practices outside the super clinic.
Super clinics are open 7 days a week, 12 hours a day, with some exceptions. They offer all patients the possibility of making an appointment for the next day up until 3 hours before closing time if all the available consultation slots for that day are booked.
In addition to offering the same services as FMGs, super clinics offer public specimen collection and imaging services on site or nearby. It is also easier to access specialized services (e.g., orthopedics or rheumatology) in some super clinics.
Aim of super clinics
The services available in super clinics mean that clients who have a non-priority condition do not have to go to the emergency room. They provide quick access to services for primary care needs.
