When we confirmed your appointment, we sent you a letter telling you what to bring. Be sure to read it because this page does not cover everything you may need for your appointment.
You should bring:
- your child
- your child's medications
- your child's appointment letter
- snacks and/or a meal
- toys, books, games - whatever will keep your child happy between appointments. You might want to bring a book for you, too!
Some of the teams have other things they want you to bring. Please refer to your appointment letter, visit the Our Services pages, or call your booking clerk for more information.
Please leave your valuables at home because we cannot keep them safe for you.
During your child's appointment, both you and your child will be quite busy. If you have other children that you must bring to the appointment, please bring along an adult caregiver who can take care of them during the appointment times.
We ask visitors and family members NOT to come into the health centre if they have cold or flu symptoms such as cough, runny nose, vomiting or fever.

Wash your hands!
Washing your hands is a great way to help keep you and your family from getting sick. Use lots of soap and warm water, and wash all over your hands. Rinse and dry your hands after. You can use our alcohol rub if you are in a hurry.
You should wash your hands:
- after you use the washroom
- before, during, and after you make a snack or a meal
- before you eat
- after handling animals or their waste
- before and after touching your child
- when your hands look dirty
- after you sneeze or cough
- before you enter your child's room (if your child is an inpatient) and again before you leave
