“The Provincial Government today announced an enhancement to the existing 811 HealthLine that will help improve access to primary care.
People can now schedule a virtual appointment with a nurse practitioner for urgent, non-emergency health issues via telephone, text or video. Appointments for these virtual walk-in clinics are available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
To make an appointment, people can call 811 or use the 811 HealthLine app. The app can be downloaded free through the Apple and Google Play app stores.
The 811 HealthLine is a confidential and free telephone line available to everyone in the province. The 811 HealthLine service and app were developed and are administered by Fonemed, a Newfoundland and Labrador company.
Improving access to primary health care is a priority for the Provincial Government, as is expanding virtual care. The importance of virtual care in the health care system has been highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic.”by
