Do physicians have to provide their patients with access to care 24-hours a day, seven days a week?
The College recognizes that providing round-the-clock coverage for patient care can be problematic. However, physicians do have a social and ethical obligation to look after their patients on a 24-hour basis and should make the necessary arrangements to ensure that alternate medical care is available even if their office or clinic is closed.
