Nelson walk-in clinic provides vital service

For the past 10 years I have relied on the walk-in clinic to fill my medical needs.

I do not have a family doctor. For the past 10 years I have relied on the walk-in clinic to fill my medical needs. This has worked well for me. I have had minor complaints dealt with efficiently, I have been referred for tests and to specialists (including hip replacement) in a timely manner. I have been happy with the service.

The location of the clinic is very convenient, has lots of parking, you can go for a coffee or do some shopping while you wait, and pick up prescriptions on-site. I understand the clinic to be an economical way of delivering service, better than jamming up emergency.

We need to keep this valuable alternative going. It serves all ages in our community well. I do not know who needs to do what, but for heaven’s sake get on with it.
