Northern Health service update for Monday May 3
Labour uncertainty across the region (at this time of writing) will require Northern Health to continue to operate at reduced levels until all health employees have returned to work.
Patients with urgent health needs should continue to go to their local hospital where they will get the care they need. Northern Health staff members have cancelled most elective surgery cases across the region for Monday, along with many outpatient diagnostic procedures and clinics. Some communities could continue to see disruptions in home and community care and public health services.
Patients are advised to visit www.northernhealth.ca or call 1-866-565-2799 for more information.
Note to Northern Health staff: if you require access to child-care in the event of exceptional circumstances on Monday May 3, call a Child Care Resource and Referral office near you. Community-by-community office listings are available at the following website:
