FAQ

Will I have a nurse?

Seymour Health Centre provides nurses and lab techs. The staffing numbers are determined by the manager in each clinic and depend on both the number of doctors and the volume of patients being seen.

How many patients will I be expected to see on a walk-in shift?

You will determine how many patients you are comfortable treating in a given time frame. Seymour Health Centre does not tell physicians how many patients they are expected to see.

If I order a test, who will review the results if I am not there?

Walk-in physicians review the results that come in during his or her shift, and each clinic has procedures to ensure that test results are reviewed and followed up on.

I don’t know the specialists in Vancouver - do you have a list?

The doctors indicate the type of referral required and the staff will refer to one of the specialists in the clinic. If you want to refer to a specific physician, you can do so.
