Hours of Operation

Same Day Access Clinic and Regular Hours

The Same Day Access Clinic is open Monday to Friday 9am to 1130 am. This service is available to provide same-day care for urgent medical problems for patients of the Fort St John Family Practice Associates. For follow up of chronic medical issues, company and insurance medicals, and routine appointments we encourage you to make an appointment with your family doctor.

Hours for regular appointments are 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 5pm Monday to Friday. The phones are answered for appointments 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 5 pm Monday to Friday. We are closed for lunch between 12 pm and 1 pm. 

After Hours

There is always essential medical care available after office hours. For phone advice the BC Health Line is available 24 hours a day. Please call 8-1-1 and a registered nurse can advise you about many health care problems. If you need to see a doctor in an emergency, go to the Fort St. John Hospital Emergency Department where there is a GP on call.

Advanced Access Comes to Fort St. John

Want to see your Doctor on the same day you call to request an appointment? That is what Advanced Access means. Dr Mackey has introduced Advanced Access into his practice. He is endeavouring to make appointments available each day (that he is in the office) so that his patients can be seen that same day. If it is a day that he is committed to be somewhere other than the clinic then our staff  may ask you to call back on the next day that your Doctor is in the office. This does mean, therefore, that they ask you to call for an appointment and not present to the Same Day Access Clinic unless an appointment with them is not available. As simple as this may sound it does actually take some getting used to so we ask that you help us make this work.
