Soldiers Memorial Hospital’s emergency department will be closed from 2 p.m. Friday, July 19, to Saturday, July 20, at 8 a.m. due to lack of physician coverage, the Nova Scotia Health Authority said.
Anyone with urgent medical needs should call 911, particularly if experiencing unusual symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest tightness, abdominal pain, persistent headache or dizziness, or an injury requiring stitches or involving a broken bone.
For non-urgent care, please call your family doctor or visit a walk-in clinic where available.
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 Mental Health Crisis Line can also be reached 24/7 by calling 1-888-429-8167.
