My Medical Appointment
Wiichihiituwin staff work with your local CMC liaison officer to arrange your medical appointment.
Please call your local CMC at least 48 hours in advance and give the reason for cancelling. If you are outside your community, you still need to let your local CMC know. They will contact the Wiichihiituwin Liaison Nurse linked to your community.
You will be notified.
After two non-valid cancellations, you will lose your order of priority for the medical appointment and will have to restart the process of rescheduling your appointment.
