An expanded Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC) opens on April 25, replacing the temporary one that has been running with limited hours for a year.

The new clinic, located at No. 3 Road and Leslie Road just next to Superstore, will be open seven days a week including statutory holidays.

Health Minister Adrian Dix was at the new location Wednesday making the announcement.

The UPCC will provide urgent primary care for people with non-life-threatening conditions who need to see a health-care provider within 12 to 24 hours, such as sprains, cuts, high fevers and minor infections.

The centre will include X-ray services.

The health-care team at the new permanent location will be made up of about 33 full-time-equivalent health-care workers, including family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and a social worker.

For those who don’t have their own doctor, UPCC staff will work with the Richmond Division of Family Practice to help get them connected to a regular primary-care doctor.

Urgent care, located at #110-4671 No. 3 Rd., will be available Monday to Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Statutory holidays will follow the same hours.
