To access after hours care, patients are asked to call 250-404-4242 Monday to Thursday starting at 4:45 p.m. and starting at 12:45 on weekends.

Physicians will then return the calls Monday to Thursday from 5 to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m., in the order the appointments were booked.

If an in-person appointment is needed, it will be scheduled at the Rosedale Medical Clinic or at another location.

The Summerland clinic does not provide COVID-19 assessments, but doctors can discuss concerns related to the pandemic over the phone or through video appointments.
