COMMUNITY NEWS
Youth Clinics – Update

Unfortunately, the Peninsula Youth Clinic will not be open in January. Organizers want to reassure any patients who have used the clinic over the last several months (and do not currently have a family doctor) that follow-up appointments can be made with Dr. Evans at Ocean Pier Medical Centre during regular office hours (please call 250-656-4114 to book follow-up appointments). Dr. Vogt will also continue to follow any youth who saw her in Psychiatric consultation, if needed.

The main Victoria Youth Clinic is still open to all youth and is located at  818 Douglas Street on the 3rd floor. It is open Monday to Thursday 11-5 and Friday 11-4.
