Clinic News


Phone System Difficulties

Dr Toom    Oct 6th, 2020

We are aware that unfortunately there may be long wait times on the phone when booking an appointment. Unfortunately we are facing unprecedented call volumes due to COVID-19 as well as staffing challenges. We have also experienced technical failures with our phone system in the month of October 2020 and this has led to patients being unable to reach the hold queue some days. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please understand that the clinic is facing unprecedented challenges but we are working aggressively to resolve them.

Tips for Telephone Visits

Dr Toom    Sept 30th, 2020

Please be aware that booked telephone visit times are approximate and your family doctor may call you up to 30 minutes after your scheduled visit time. It is not necessary to call the clinic if your appointment is running a bit late. Thanks for your understanding.

Update on Flu Shots

Dr Toom    Sept 30th, 2020

Unfortunately there is not currently a plan to offer influenza vaccines at Wellington Medical Clinic this year due to logistical difficulties and staffing issues related to COVID-19. To find a flu clinic near you, please visit IslandFluClinics.ca or Immunize BC.

COVID-19 Restrictions

Dr Toom    Sept 15th, 2020

The clinic is currently open and the doctors are seeing patients. Note that patients are also being seen in-person if required although we are attempting to minimize the need for patients to come to the clinic. If you are unsure about what to do then please just start by booking a phone appointment with your doctor to discuss your issue and then we can book an in-person appointment if required. Please bring your own mask and wear it during visits to the clinic. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough or shortness of breath please complete the COVID-19 assessment tool to determine if you need testing. We are not currently offering COVID-19 testing at Wellington Medical Clinic. Please call 1-844-901-8442 to book a COVID-19 testing appointment in the Nanaimo area if this is recommended by the screening tool.
