Service Closures & UpdatesPublic Service AnnouncementsEastern-Rural
Posted: January 5, 2024

The public is advised that the Clarenville walk-in clinic, operated by community physicians out of Dr. G.B. Cross Memorial Hospital, will no longer be offered on a regular basis due to physician unavailability. Work is ongoing to identify potential options for pop-up clinics and this information will be communicated as it becomes available.

Patients who do not currently have a primary care provider are reminded to register with Patient Connect NL to be connected to a Family Care Team or a primary care provider as soon as one becomes available in your area.

In case of emergency: Patients with a medical emergency who require an ambulance should call 911. Those who feel they have a serious or urgent medical problem should proceed to their nearest emergency department. If you are unsure if you should go to the emergency department, please call the 811 HealthLine or click here.

For non-emergency support: 811 HealthLine is available 24/7 to provide:

  • medical advice (including virtual nurse practitioner appointments);
  • health information; and
  • support in a mental health crisis.

NL Health Services thanks the public for their understanding as we continue to focus on providing safe and quality care for people of the Clarenville area.
