Since the new medical clinic opened in Fort Saskatchewan, many are wondering if it's truly a walk-in clinic.

Other ‘walk-in’ clinics in the Fort have had to make their clinics appointment only in the midst of fewer staff and more patients.

The staff at the new Westpark Shoppers Drug Mart clinic confirmed they are available for walk-ins as well as by appointment.

However, with the clinic being steadily busy after opening last week, staff suggest booking an appointment for shortest wait times. 

The clinic is pharmacist lead and does not have a doctor. 

Pharmacists can assess, prescribe, and treat patients for a range of common illnesses and injuries, administer vaccines and other medication by injection, support chronic disease management, and order and receive lab results.
