A Mobile Primary Care Clinic Is Popping Up In Yarmouth This Weekend – You Can See A Doctor

This weekend in Yarmouth, you can have mild or moderate health concerns addressed by a doctor or nurse practitioner when you drop-in at a mobile primary clinic.

The clinic will be popping up at the Harbour South Medical Centre at 235 Main Street in Yarmouth on Saturday March 25 from 9 AM until 4:30 PM.

Nova Scotia Health stresses this a drop-in clinic. Do not call the Harbour South Medical Clinic in advance. Upon arrival, you will be asked for the reason of your visit to ensure they can treat you. If able to help, you will be given an approximate appointment time. Bring your health card and list of your medications.

Nova Scotia Health says the clinic is not a substitute for your primary care provider. The clinics are an option when there are times you are unable to see your primary care provider or do not have one.

“Your patience is greatly appreciated as we aim to provide you the best possible care.” says Nova Scotia Health

The clinic can only address non-urgent, low-acuity health issues and is not an emergency service.

Types of concerns that may be addressed at the mobile primary care clinic include:

• Prescription refills or renewals (except for controlled substances)
• Minor respiratory symptoms
• Sore throat
• Earaches
• Fever
• Headache
• Rashes
• Minor gastrointestinal concerns (vomiting and diarrhea)
• Cough, flu, or cold symptoms
• Urinary tract infections
• Muscle pain

Lab or diagnostic imaging requisitions will not be part of the mobile service. More information can be found here.

Visit an emergency department if you are experiencing an emergency. Anyone with urgent medical needs should call 911.
