Winter clinics

Measures to increase capacity during the winter

In order to improve access to health services, winter clinics are set up for the population in some regions of Québec during the winter to offer more appointments, in addition to the urgent care and other options offered. They help promote access for people who have flu‑like and gastrointestinal symptoms, while also reducing overcrowding in emergency rooms.

What to do if you feel you need to consult

Before consulting, and depending on your symptoms, self‑care at home is recommended. For advice, go to the Flu‑like symptoms and gastroenteritis page or the Finding a healthy resource page.

How winter clinics work

The clinics are open at least two days a week and can be accessed by people of all ages who have flu‑like or gastrointestinal symptoms. Following an assessment by an Info‑Santé 811 nurse, a person who needs an appointment is referred for a consultation with the right professional in a winter clinic.
