In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the IWK X-ray Services will see patients by appointment only with priority for urgent and time sensitive patient care. Appointments can be made by calling (902)-476-2091. Phone lines are open from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday, excluding holidays. 

Parents/guardians are asked to have their child’s health card on hand when they call to book an appointment. The IWK provides outpatient X-ray service for patients up until their 16th birthday; after that age, patients must contact adult X-ray services through the Nova Scotia Health Authority.

X-ray patients must enter the health centre through the Children's Building Entrance on South Street. Patient and visitor restrictions are in effect for the IWK Health Centre. Pediatric patients coming for X-ray services can bring one support person. All patients will be screened at the door to ensure everyone is kept safe and precautions are followed.

X-ray booking services are currently receiving a high volume of calls. If you cannot get through please continue to call, voicemail and callback is not available at this time.
