Will our emergency room ever be open 7 days per week?

That is a great question. We certainly hope services  will one day be open 7 days per week with extended hours that will include emergency services.  We are actively lobbying Interior Health and the Ministry of Health to have these conversations to find a solution.

Where can I have my blood pressure taken?

There are a few answers to that question.  If you are concerned about your blood pressure immediately because something doesn't feel right, you should seek immediate medical attention.  Go to the medical clinic if it is open, ask them to help.  Go to the Emergency department if it is open and ask them for help.  If neither are open, find someone to drive you to the nearest doctor or urgent care clinic.  Not an option?  Call 911.
