Winter clinic

If you present flu or gastroenteritis symptoms, find out what to do and when to consult a doctor. 

Winter clinics are set up from December to March in various resources in the health and social services network to treat flu or gastroenteritis symptoms, any other non-urgent health problems or to get psychosocial help.

These clinics offer additional medical consultations by adding operating hours and staff to their regular schedule, in particular in the evening and on the weekend. This allows them to meet the population’s increased consultation needs during the winter, a time of year that is conducive to the circulation of certain viruses.

Set up in a number of regions in Québec, these clinics offer increased medical services for the entire population, irrespective of whether or not people are registered with a family doctor or what their health condition is.

A winter clinic can be set up in any of the following resources:

  • a super clinic;
  • a family medicine group (FMG);
  • a university family medicine group (U-FMG);
  • a medical clinic;
  • a CLSC (local community services centre).
