Computer

The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA) is expanding its online appointment booking service.

A release states blood collection appointments at Dartmouth General Hospital and the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre in Elmsdale can be made online beginning on Wednesday September 16.

Appointments for blood collection and X-ray services at the IWK in Halifax will be added to the online booking service in the coming weeks.

The NSHA says the expansion of online booking will focus primarily on blood collection, with diagnostic imaging appointments to follow.

As new locations for blood collection and diagnostic imaging become available for online booking, the changes will be reflected in the location listings on the appropriate website, while services introduced at the IWK will be reflected on its website.

Patients without internet access will continue to be able to make blood collection and X-ray appointments by phone by calling 902-893-5554, ext. 49999.
