Located on the Langford / Colwood border, the Westshore Urgent Primary Care Centre gives patients access to a range of services in one central location.
The goal of the centre is to provide same-day access to team-based primary care delivered by physicians, nurse practitioners and registered nurses, with access to mental health and substance use clinicians.
Please check www.Medimap.ca for wait and closing times.
Due to COVID-19 , patients are asked to call ahead, when possible. Unannounced patients will be greeted by a patient ambassador (nurse) at the entrance of the UPCC. They will determine the best way to support the visitor through a virtual or in-person visit.

When it's not an emergency, but just can't wait. No referral or appointment is needed.

To help you choose the right care for yourself or a loved one, here’s a quick guide to help you know where to go based on the nature and urgency of your ailment. (Click diagram to enlarge)
Doctors' or Nurse Practitioners' Office: Your primary care provider should be your first call in non-emergency situations. Your provider knows you and your health history, including what medications you are taking and what chronic conditions might need to be considered in your treatment. Same day appointments may be available - ask your provider.
- If your provider is unavailable, try a walk-in clinic or Urgent Primary Care Centre (UPCC).
- Call 8-1-1 for trusted health advice at HealthLink BC.
Walk-in Clinic: If you have an illness that is not an emergency – like a sinus infection or skin rash, minor sprain or strain – and you cannot get in to see your primary care doctor, local walk-in clinics are available for same-day care.
For locations and wait times, visit www.medimap.ca
Emergency Department: Emergency departments are designed to treat urgent, acute and life-threatening conditions and aren’t the place for routine care or minor ailments. If you feel you are dealing with a health emergency, call 9-1-1 or go to your hospital emergency department right away. Otherwise, one of the above options will save you time and clear the way for patients in need of emergency treatment.
Still unsure of where to go?
HealthLink BC offers 8-1-1, a free provincial health information and advice phone line available for residents of British Columbia. By calling 8-1-1, you can speak to a health service navigator, who can help you find health information and services; or connect you directly with a registered nurse, a registered dietitian, a qualified exercise professional, or a pharmacist. Any one of these healthcare professionals will help you get the information you need to manage your health concerns, or those of your family.
