Just two months after launching, the Northern Health Online Clinic and Information Line has answered over 12,000 calls from Northerners!

This means that the Online Clinic and Information Line has supported over 12,000 Northern BC residents with either general information and health advice about COVID-19 or a virtual screening by a nurse, family doctor, or nurse practitioner, if required. Northern Health is proud of the fact that we were able to get this line up and available for patients so quickly, in order to support our Northern BC residents during these challenging times.
