During this Pentecost weekend, the Regional Health Agency is increasing the hours of on-call medical homes. This is to maintain continuity of treatment and prevent congestion in the event of an emergency.
During the Pentecost weekend, the hours of operation of on-call medical centres are extended. They will be open from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday and Monday (public holidays). They’ll also be open until 11 p.m. on Saturday.
Before travelling to a medical home, the ARS reminds us that we must phone 15 to be advised by a regulating doctor.
Martinique has four On-Call Medical Centers scattered over the island:
Inside the boundaries of the Marin hospital, within the grounds of Trinity Hospital, within the Pierre Zobda-Quitman hospital, opposite the new emergency department, at the Saint Paul clinic, within the constraints of the Marin hospital, within the confines of the Marin hospital.
During the closing hours of medical practises, the populace has access to a general practitioner under this health system.
The ARS hopes to minimise congestion in emergencies during the holiday weekend by promoting the system of on-call medical homes.
Permanence is also put up for Pentecost Monday to assure the continuation of the COVID-19 screening and immunisation programme.
From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., an antigen test will be available at the airport’s screening centre. From 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., vaccinations will be available at the Aimé Césaire airport vaccination facility.
