Frequently Asked Questions
1. Will Bramalea CHC accept people in emergency medical situations? (For example a child who just fell and broke his arm.)

Not yet, but it is one of our goals and strategic directions to do so in the future. If you are interested in working with us to make this happen please click here.

We have limited funds to cover essential lab tests and/or specialist care. This will be determined by the client and health care team. Unfortunately we do not have funding to cover prescription costs.

No, legally youth do not need parental consent to become a client of the centre and access primary healh care. Health promotion programs and initiatives may involve parents and families depending on the circumstances.

No, unfortunately you cannot access our primary health care services if you already have a family doctor. You are welcome to participate in our Diabetes Education Program or community health promotion programs and initiatives.
