UPDATE: Interior Health has just received notification that the job action planned for this week by the Health Sciences Professional Bargaining Association (HSPBA) has been withdrawn.
Interior Health will have full Laboratory services at normal staffing levels tomorrow (Monday).
Services will be limited at Interior Health laboratories on Monday, Dec. 10 due to job action by members of the Health Sciences Professional Bargaining Association.
All labs will operate at essential service levels, which means reduced staff and possible delays. This may also result in outpatients with non-urgent issues being asked to return at a later date.
There will be no impact in service for chemotherapy, dialysis or transplant patients. Urgent lab test and pre-surgical screening for surgeries on Monday and Tuesday will go ahead as scheduled.
If you have an appointment and are unsure whether or not you should go to the lab on Monday, please call 250-231-4515.
