Central Health would like to advise that the ER at Connaigre Peninsula Health Centre in Harbour Breton is open. The temporary closure scheduled for today (Tuesday, August 2 – Wednesday August 3) has been cancelled.
Please disregard yesterday’s advisory. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Residents are also reminded of the 811 HealthLine which they can avail of anytime. 811 Healthline is a confidential and free telephone line staffed by experienced Registered Nurses. 811 is available to all residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, of any age. Call 811 at any time, day or night, to speak to a Registered Nurse. They are always there for you.
The HealthLine has a nurse practitioner (NP) virtual care service. A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse with additional education and experience who can diagnose and treat illnesses, prescribe medications, if required, to treat a variety of common health care conditions at every stage of life. This service can prevent unnecessary emergency room visits for non-emergent issues. Appointments with NPs over the phone or by video are available everyday 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, including weekends. PLEASE NOTE THAT, DEPENDING ON APPOINTMENT AVAILABILITY, IT COULD TAKE UP TO 3 DAYS TO SEE THE 811 NP.
