Emergencies

In the event of a serious emergency please call 911.

Reaching your family doctor after hours:
  • For minor emergencies that cannot wait until the office is open, please call our office at 604-874-0261.  Wait to hear the entire voicemail and the phone number for the doctor on call will be provided at the end of the message.
  • The family physicians at 8th Avenue Family Practice and Maternity Care share the responsibility of covering your after hours questions as an unpaid service to our patients. We ask that you respect our time with our families and only contact us for urgent problems that can not wait until the next business day.  However, we are happy to take your calls regarding urgent medical issues.
City Centre Urgent Primary Care Centre
For minor emergencies and urgencies occurring after clinic hours that require an in-person assessment, but do not require an emergency room at a hospital, patients can be seen at the Urgent Primary Care Centre located at 1290 Hornby Street.
