After-Hours Care

Summerville Family Health Team (FHT) takes your health to heart and recognizes that medical issues often arise outside of our regular office hours. That is why as a Summerville FHT patient we provide you with various options for after-hours care.

While our physicians do reserve same-day appointments for urgent medical needs, you may not know if your issue can wait until the clinic opens. The Telephone Health Advisory Service (THAS) offers Summerville FHT patients after-hours telephone health advice and, when appropriate, access to the Summerville FHT on-call physician.

THAS is available outside regular clinic hours at 1-866-553-7205.

Alternatively, evening and weekend appointments are available at one of our five locations for urgent issues that arise outside of regular clinic hours. By contacting your clinic using the number below, a recorded message will provide you with the contact information for the appropriate after-hours clinic.

Maintain the circle of care; try to avoid walk-in clinics

• Walk-in clinics do not have access to your medical history 

• Your family physician is rarely notified about a walk-in visit and is therefore unable to provide any necessary follow-up care

• All Summerville FHT physicians and healthcare providers have access to your detailed medical history and can provide appropriate care specific to your needs

• Your medical records are updated and remain clear and consistent

• Your family physician is always made aware of your after-hours visit and can easily follow-up with you if necessary

• After-hours medical advice and care is available to Summerville FHT patients through THAS, our on-call physician or the after-hours clinic
