The Annapolis Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) provides access to care for those with unexpected, non-life-threatening health concerns with appointments offered within one to two days.

To book (or cancel) an appointment* call 902-532-4011 or visit in-person. You will be assessed to determine if you require an appointment later that day, or the next day the centre is open. If you require emergent care, you will be directed to the nearest emergency department.

There are a specific number of appointments available each day at the UTC. Once those appointments are booked up, we will no longer answer the telephone line. A sign will be posted at Annapolis Community Health Centre to inform the public. Closed on holidays.

*Please note: If there are no appointments available at this urgent treatment centre and your issue isn't urgent in nature, you can also call 1-833-710-0110 for availability of same-day appointments at surrounding primary care and after hours clinics. Telephone lines open starting at 8 a.m., Monday to Friday. There is limited availability and appointments will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
