Halifax: Starting October 2, 2020 patients and families will be able to make online booking appointments with IWK Blood Collection. Online appointments will be available to book as of October 8, 2020.
IWK blood collection specializes in services for women and children. Other patients are directed to use the services provided by Nova Scotia Health via their website.
“Our team is very pleased to move to an electronic solution for appointment bookings that will support patient flow in the waiting areas and alleviate the difficulties associated with a high-volume phone-based system,” says Leota Dickey, Director of Lab Medicine and Diagnostic Imaging at the IWK. “Patients will now be able to book their appointments at their own convenience.”
Patients wishing to book appointments online can visit IWK Blood Collection.
Patients without internet access will continue to be able to make blood collection appointments by phone, Monday to Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at phone number (902) 497-1764.
