CF Outpatient Clinics

Booking Appointments 

Patients can book appointments through the CF office at 604-806-8522. The office is open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4pm. Each patient is booked automatically every 3-4 months and will receive notification of their appointment approximately one month before their clinic visit. If patients require bookings outside of their regularly scheduled appointments, they are asked to call the clinic to set up an alternate appointment time.

Travelling to clinic from outside the Lower Mainland

Travel Assistance Program (TAP)

If you are travelling to clinic or hospital from other parts of the province you may be able to use the Travel Assistance Program (TAP), depending on where you live and travel services available. For example, if you are travelling from Victoria to Vancouver on BC Ferries to get to your CF appointment, a TAP form can be used to cover the cost of the ferry ride. You can obtain a TAP form from your family doctor or from the CF clinic. Speak to the CF social worker about this program. See the Travel Assistance Program form for more information.

Hope Air

You may also be eligible for travel assistance through Hope Air, depending on your income.  Hope Air is a national charitable organization.  They work with commercial airlines (such as Air Canada and West Jet) to provide free flights for people on low-income who must travel to get to medical appointments. Find more information, and apply for a flight on the Hope Air website.
