Update: Health Link 811

Lisa C. Community, Health and wellness

Do you have a health concern for yourself or a child?

Call Health Link by dialing 811 for quick and easy advice from a registered nurse 24/7. They will ask questions, assess symptoms and determine the best care for you.

Health Link has temporarily changed the way calls are answered to help Albertans get to the right Health Link team member.

Now, when a call comes into Health Link, the caller will be asked a few simple questions. The call will then be directed to the best resource, so the individual can get the assistance needed. This resource may be a

  • registered nurse,
  • vaccine booking clerk. or
  • other Health Link team member

Wait times may vary throughout the day due to call volumes. Remember, in a medical emergency, always call 911 or visit the nearest emergency department.
