The Northern Neighbours NPLC will strive to offer urgent same day appointments to patients. The aim of the clinic is to have patients call when they are unwell and have them seen by the Nurse Practitioner in a timely manner. This will provide you access to your health care provider when you really need it.
When you make an appointment please tell the receptionist your reason for the visit, this allows for the appropriate amount of time to be booked for your appointment.
If you are going to miss an appointment, please provide at least 24 hours’ notice or a fee may apply. A late cancellation policy is in effect.
In order to properly assess your medication needs, prescription renewals may require an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner. In some cases, they may ask you to phone pharmacy and ask them to send the requisition over to the Northern Neighbours Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic and have them book your appointment two weeks prior to running out of your medications. You may be required to complete blood or urine tests when renewing your medications.
Please note: It may take between 2-7 days for your renewal to be completed.
If you have an abnormal lab test, you will receive a call from us. We do not call you if the results are normal. You may wish to check your results with the Nurse Practitioner at your next visit to the Northern Neighbours Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic.
Notes, Letters and Form Completion
Completion of letters or forms for school, work, and insurance companies will require an appointment. Please note: this may take up to 30 days, depending on complexity of form and fees may apply.
The completion of forms may require payment of fees.
Please check in with reception and bring your health card to each visit. Inform reception of any changes of name, address, work or phone numbers.
We try to be on time and we would like you to be also. You may have a short wait if we have an emergency or other complication. If you are late for your appointment, you may be asked to re-book for another time.
