NS Health: Overcrowding at Nova Scotia Health hospitals this week (Oct 12 2022)

Nova Scotia Health is experiencing high patient volumes this week at hospitals in all zones. Patient waits in emergency departments may be long. We appreciate your continued patience.

Please do not hesitate to visit the emergency department if you are experiencing an emergency. Anyone with urgent medical needs should call 911.

For non-urgent care, please call your family doctor or visit a walk-in clinic.

As a reminder, Nova Scotians may also make an appointment for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries at Urgent Treatment Centres, now open in several locations: https://www.nshealth.ca/urgenttreatmentcentre

For general health advice and information call 811, which is a service offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week by experienced registered nurses.

The provincial Mental Health and Addictions Crisis Line can also be reached 24/7 by calling 1-888-429-8167.
