Niagara Virtual Urgent Care, is an online treatment service that allows adult patients throughout the region who don’t have access to a primary care provider to book a same-day appointment and receive care via their mobile phones, tablets or computers. The website also supports care for children and youth from anywhere in Ontario through London Health Sciences Centre’s Children’s Hospital.
Appointments are booked online at UrgentCareOntario.ca at a time that’s convenient for the patient between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. Appointments are booked in 15-minute intervals and provide safe, quality healthcare while reducing waiting room visits. Once an appointment is booked, patients simply log into a secure video link a few minutes before their scheduled time and are connected with one of the care providers.
All visits to Niagara Virtual Urgent Care start with an assessment by a Nurse Practitioner, who asks questions on what the illness might be. Depending on the situation, an Emergency Department physician is on-hand to do further examination and advise on next steps, including recommending the patient visit an ED close to them, if necessary.
