Service for people who don't have a family doctor
811 extension 3
The primary care access point (GAP) is a service offered exclusively to those who do not have a family doctor and who are registered on the Québec Family Doctor Finder (GAMF) waiting list.
This new service provides individuals who don't have a family doctor with a better assessment of their healthcare needs so that they may be referred to a healthcare professional who can manage their needs.
