Services Resuming in Port aux Basques Area on November 26
Western Health is advising that all scheduled appointments and services will resume at Dr. Charles L. LeGrow Health Centre and MP Place on November 26.
Appointments for blood collection will proceed as scheduled. There are some tests which require samples to be transported out of the health centre, and those appointments will need to be rescheduled. You will be advised at registration if your appointment needs to be rescheduled, depending upon the type of test required. Please bring your paper requisition with you (if you were provided with one) to your appointment.
Individuals with non-urgent medical concerns (ie. inability to travel to their medical appointments or pharmacy for prescriptions) may call the Client Relations office at 1-833-784-6802 until 8 p.m. today or 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. November 26-29. Please leave your name and number and someone will return your call. If you hear a busy signal, please try calling again.
