Brantford COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre to be re-located on Saturday

HealthcareBrantford COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre to be re-located on Saturday

Effective March 12, 2022 the Brantford COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre will move to its new location at The Willett Urgent Care Centre in Paris (238 Grand River Street North). This new location will have enhanced access to diagnostic services such as lab tests or x-rays, allowing patients with COVID-19 concerns to receive a more thorough on-site examination. The Clinical Assessment Centre will have a separate marked entrance at the rear of the building and parking will be available on Alexander Street.

The COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre provides a convenient option for children and adults who may need support in managing mild viral symptoms. The intention of this clinic is to support local primary care practices in managing patients with viral symptoms commonly associated with COVID-19, and to provide an alternative to urgent care and the emergency department. Clinical Assessment Centres should not be used as a replacement to urgent care or emergency care, and are intended to treat only those presenting with mild viral symptoms.

Patients with cold and flu-like symptoms are encouraged to contact their primary care provider who can directly book an appointment to be seen by the Clinical Assessment Centre Physician. The on-site physician will determine if escalated care or referral to the Emergency Department or on-call Pediatrician is necessary (bypassing ED wait times for the patient).

If patients do not have a primary care provider, they can book an appointment at the COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre by email (covid.assessment@bchsys.org) or by telephone at 519-751-5818. Staff at the Clinical Assessment Centre will refer you to the on-site physician as appropriate.

The Brant Community Health System, Brantford Brant Ontario Health Team and Brant Primary Care Council would like to thank The City of Brantford for providing the current COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre location over the past two years, allowing us to administer over 100,000 tests.
