WE ARE MOVING
Effective October 4, 2021, all in-person doctor and nursing appointments will be held at our new location:
Colvile Medical Building, Unit 401 - 1515 Dufferin Crescent, Nanaimo, BC
Unfortunately Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) and BC Centres for Disease Control (BCCDC) are not providing family doctors offices with COVID-19 vaccination doses at this time. Please check their websites with regard to how you can get vaccinated.
We are continuing to offer in-person medical appointments as we have throughout the pandemic. If you require an in-person appointment please call the office and request this. If you are uncertain please book a phone appointment and review the request with your family doctor. If it is urgent you can ask to book in with the Doctor of the Day (DOD) on any day except for Sunday.
For the foreseeable future we will be locking the clinic door on Saturdays only due to limited staffing. If you have a Saturday in-person appointment please wait in the food court and call the office when you arrive and the MOA will escort you to the room.
Forms can be picked up between the hours of 900am-Noon and 1-3pm on Monday through Friday. We are closed for form pick up from Noon-1pm and on all Saturdays.
The clinic is currently open and the doctors are seeing patients. Masks are required in the clinic. Note that patients are also being seen in-person if required although we are attempting to minimize the need for patients to come to the clinic. In general we are avoiding in-person appointments for routine care. If you are unsure about what to do then please just start by booking a phone appointment with your doctor to discuss your issue and then we can book an in-person appointment afterwards if required. Please bring your own mask and wear it during visits to the clinic. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough or shortness of breath please complete the COVID-19 assessment tool to determine if you need testing. We are not currently offering COVID-19 testing at Wellington Medical Clinic. Please call 1-844-901-8442 to book a COVID-19 testing appointment in the Nanaimo area if this is recommended by the screening tool.
Most visits for routine medical care are being offered as phone or video consults due to COVID-19 restrictions. Please be aware that booked telephone visit times are approximate and the doctor may call you up to 30 minutes after your scheduled visit time. It is not necessary to call the clinic if your appointment is running a bit late. Thanks for your understanding.
