About

This indicator is the percentage of citizens who most often go to the after-hours clinic or walk-in clinic when sick or in need of care from a health professional.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, Primary Health Survey

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "go to an after-hours clinic or a walk-in clinic for non-emergency health care needs" by the number of respondents who answered "see your personal family doctor at his or her office or in a home visit, go to an after-hours clinic or a walk-in clinic for non-emergency health care needs, go to a community health centre where you can see different health care professionals, go to a hospital emergency department, see your nurse practitioner at his or her office or in a home visit, go to an alternative practitioner, like a chiropractor, homeopath, or massage therapist, call Tele-Care 811, go to your community pharmacist or go to some other place of car to the question: Which one of the following best describes what you do when you are sick or need care from a doctor, nurse or other health professional?

Notes

The 2020 edition of the Primary Health Survey (PHS) was conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic did not influence the survey’s response rate, NBHC had to assess the impact of surveying during the pandemic. Accordingly, advanced statistical analyses were performed to allow for comparison between the results obtained in 2020 and those obtained in previous PHS cycles. Despite these analyses, users are advised to use the PHS 2020 data with caution, especially when creating estimates for small sub-populations or when comparing it to other PHS editions.
