Citing an ongoing job action by health professionals, the Interior Health Authority asks anyone in need of lab services on Monday to check in before paying a visit.
A press release from the IHA said labs will operate at essential service levels, with staff reduced and delays expected. This might result in outpatients with non-urgent lab requests asked to return at a later date.
There will be no impact on services for chemotherapy, dialysis or transplant patients. Urgent lab tests and pre-surgical screening for surgeries on Monday and Tuesday will take place.
Anyone with questions or concerns is asked to phone 250-231-4514.
