Basics

For the health and safety of our patients, Foremed Clinic has a No-Pets policy. Only working Service animals are permitted

This No-Pets policy applies to Pets, Emotional Support Animals, Comfort Animals, Therapy Animals Service animals are individually trained to perform work or tasks for people with disabilities. Service animals are required to be leashed or harnessed except when performing work or tasks where such tethering would interfere with the animals ability to perform the work or tasks.

Please note that our clinic's policy is that all infants and young children must have at least one parent or guardian enrolled as a ForeMed Medical Clinic patient first. Please arrange for an appointment for the child and one parent. Arrive 15 min prior to the appointment time to allow for registration. Bring the Mother’s valid Medical Health Card for registration of the new born.

For all new patients, fill out the appointment form and Clinic will contact you with an appointment.

Our clinic is located conveniently by Columbia Skytrain station at 420 Columbia Street, New Westminster. Paid parking is available at the street level. Limited free parking is available by access through Front street. The entrance to the clinic is through the elevator and through the Pharmacy.

Consultations for travel and immunizations are not considered a medically insured service. We can provide travel consultations, but there is a fee for this service.

We do not carry vaccines for yellow fever. These can be accessed through Travel clinics.


Yes, we can complete these services. These as not medically insured services, so there is a fee involved for the assessment.

Yes, in order for the doctor to discuss care of your child, it is necessary for the child to be present. If this is a phone appointment, they do not need to physically be with you to answer the questions.

Phone/Internet

Due to the current COVID pandemic, the delivery of our services have changed to reflect safe and effective primary care. Phone consultations will suffice for prescription refills. However, it is upto the discretion of the doctor to decide if an in person exam is necessary before providing a prescription.


We utilize telehealth to complement our phone calls and get a better assessment of your health. We recognize that there may be barriers to access Internet based resources for many patients.

Our doctors will work with you to provide safe and effective alternatives that work for you. At this time, a minimum requirement is access to a phone line.

There are many reasons for it being difficult to get through the phones. Fortunately, we have a few solutions to ensure your needs are met.

For any NONURGENT requests, please use our “Contact us” forms. There you will find a form regarding common queries that we receive. We will try and get back to you in 2 to 5 business days through email or a phone call.

Please leave phone calls for URGENT requests and same day appointments. This way you can help provide equitable access to all.

Payments

Formed Clinic does not offer refunds once services have been provided with the exception of BC Care Card coverage reinstatement.

If your BC Care Card has recently become reinstated and would like reimbursement for a visit you paid for privately, please contact our office. Refunds would be processed and paid out within 30 days from the day of the visit in the same method of payment made.

At this time, payments may be made over the phone or in person. A receipt can be emailed to you.

If we are unable to validate your medical coverage or you do not have medical coverage, there will be a fee for the visit and any procedures on top of the visit.

The following services are not covered under MSP:
• Travel advice and medicine
• School/Camp forms
• Driver’s Physicals
• Work Physicals
• Sick Notes
• Copies of records
• Transfer of Records
• Any Form that require a doctor's signature

Appointments

Yes, our office works with booked appointments. Many same day requests are available to serve you better.

Please use the phone to book for same day URGENT appointments.

Some issues do require an appointment such as pap tests and physicals. Same day reservations are available 5 days per week.

Walk in reservations are not doctor specific, but are for the first doctor available at the time of your booking. Our walk-in reservation open at 8 am each morning and patients can book for any available time throughout the day.

Patients are responsible for following up with the doctor for test results. We do not adhere to a no news is good news policy. Tests are ordered to investigate your symptoms or wellness.

If your result is abnormal, we will make every effort to get a hold of you, however you are encouraged to follow up with the doctor if symptoms persist or get worse.

Please ask our staff or the doctor how long it will take for your test results to come back to ensure you are able to book for a follow up in a timely manner.

Our staff cannot discuss or interpret your test results for you.

Bloodwork results are usually reported/available in 1-5 days. X-ray & ultrasound results are usually available in 3-7 days. Pregnancy screening results can take 2-3 weeks. Pap test results can take up to 8 weeks.

The Medical Services Plan (MSP) places restrictions on the number of patients that a doctor can see in a day. Due to fluctuating patient demand, the doctor may reach this MSP “cap” before the clinic is scheduled to close. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and strongly urge patients to visit the clinic or call 2 hours before the posted closing time to ensure being seen that day.
Walk in reservations are not doctor specific, but are for the first doctor available at the time of your booking. Our walk-in reservation open at 8 am each morning and patients can book for any available time throughout the day.
At this time, we are not accepting patients for regular family practice. Foremed clinic can provide routine care for you however. Patients panels are a fluid subject and you may enquire the provider you are intermittently seeing if they can add you to their panel. We prioritize patients with higher needs.

Prescription of controlled medications including opioids (codeine, oxycodone, oxycontin, hydromorphone etc.), benzodiazepines (lorazepam, clonazepam etc.) and sleeping medications (zopiclone etc.) are coming under increased scrutiny and regulation by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia (CPSBC) due to the tragic spike in overdose deaths relating to these medications over the past year in British Columbia.

In June 2016 the CPSBC issued a Professional Standard regarding the prescription of these medications (https://www.cpsbc.ca/files/pdf/PSG-Safe-Prescribing.pdf). All doctors practicing in British Columbia are bound by this Standard which ‘reflects relevant legal requirements and are enforceable under the Health Professions Act, RSBC 1996, c.183 (HPA) and College Bylaws under the HPA’.

Refills for these medications must be made in person with your doctor as a reassessment of your pain and function is required on a regular basis (unless these medications are prescribed in the context of palliative care or cancer management). If you have any questions relating to changes in your medications or the new clinic policies please book an appointment to speak with your doctor.

As a courtesy we do not charge for cancelled appointments. However, if you know that you are unable to make an appointment, even if it is the day of the appointment, we would appreciate if you could call and let our staff know so that another patient who may need to be seen can be fit into that appointment slot. If this becomes a regular pattern, an invoice will be sent to your address.

We understand that circumstances can arise causing late arrivals and do our best to accommodate. If a physician is fully booked up for the day however and you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you may be asked to come back later in the day or rebook for another day. If you are able to phone and let our staff know that you are running late it is appreciated as another patient may be able to be seen early in order to accommodate a late arrival.
