Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) Health Services advises the public that the weekend walk-in clinic located at Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital in Clarenville will be temporarily closed on Sunday, July 2, 2023. The clinic will operate normally from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 1, 2023.

Patients who feel they have a serious or urgent medical problem should proceed to the emergency department. Patients with a medical emergency who require an ambulance should call 911.

If you are unsure whether you or a loved one should go to an emergency department, please call the NL HealthLine at 811 to speak with a registered nurse 24 hours, seven days a week. The HealthLine also has a nurse practitioner (NP) virtual care service that can prevent unnecessary emergency room visits for non-emergent issues. Appointments with NPs over the phone or by video are available everyday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., including weekends. Please note that, appointments to see the 811 NP can usually be accommodated within three days. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please call the NL HealthLine at 811.

NL Health Services thanks the public and employees for their cooperation and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
