1. How do I book an appointment?
To book an appointment with a Physician or Nurse, you can either call the SWCC at (709) 864-8500, email email@example.com, visit UC-5000 (5th floor, University Centre) or login to HealthMyself - Patient Portal. To book an appointment with a Counsellor, please fill out the online form here.
2. What if I am unable to attend an appointment?
We ask that you notify us at least 8 hours before your appointment if you need to cancel or reschedule so that other students waiting to be seen can be accommodated. Appointments can be cancelled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or via HealthMyself - Patient Portal. Both methods are time-stamped and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Failure to provide sufficient notice or you are late to an appointment will result in a charge to you. A fee of $30 will be charged to your student account which may result in transcripts and/or registration being withheld pending payment. Should your appointment be with a psychiatrist the missed appointment fee will be significantly higher.
Any questions about missed appointment charges should be directed to the Student Wellness and Counselling Centre at (709) 864-8500. Urgent and compelling extenuating circumstances affecting your ability to provide the required notice may be considered at the Centre’s discretion.
3. What if I need help when the Centre is closed?
Should you need to see a physician, walk in clinic MAY be available at: The Blackmarsh Road Family Care Centre, located in the Blackmarsh Road Dominion Supermarket. Call (709) 576-6555. In case of EMERGENCY, please call 911 or go to the emergency department of the nearest hospital.
