Northern Health has launched a COVID-19 online clinic and information line to help answer questions and concerns from Northern BC residents. The NH COVID-19 online clinic and information line can be reached at 1-844-645-7811.
“We are launching this service to ensure Northern Health residents have access to information, health advice, and an online clinic to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, while reducing demand on emergency rooms and other health services,” according to a post on the health authority’s website.
This service is staffed by nurses, physicians, and nurse practitioners, offering virtual screening and assessment for individuals who feel they may have COVID-19 or feel they have been exposed. By calling the online clinic, northern B.C. residents can receive information, may undergo virtual screening, be assessed by a nurse, and may see a physician or nurse practitioner if it is required.
Other options for health information and advice continue to be available, including calling your primary care provider, or contacting HealthLink BC (8-1-1) at any time.
