The Delhi Community Health Centre Walk-In Clinics are open to everyone in our community. No appointment is required. On Tuesdays & Thursdays, a Pediatrician is available to see children 16 years old and under.

DCHC location
Children with pre-booked appointments in the pediatric walk-in clinic will be given priority over those arriving at the same time, but may not necessarily be seen at the exact time of their appointment.

Due to a declining number of clinics offering walk-in services, we sometimes have high patient volume resulting in a heavy backlog, and at times it may be necessary to close the clinic early to accommodate patients registered earlier in the evening.

  • Services are provided on a first come, first served basis.
  • Physicians only provide acute/urgent care.
  • Last patient registration is at 7:30pm.
