Urgent Treatment Centre
Hours are subject to change.
Patients will be seen by appointment only.
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.
Please note: 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.
More about the program
The Annapolis UTC is different than an emergency department in that it provides care for non-life-threatening illness or injuries, does not receive ambulances, and only sees patients by appointment.
