Reminder to book appointments for blood and sample collections
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all Health PEI specimen collection (including blood collection) and diagnostic imaging are now being done by appointment.
As noted by Marion Dowling, Health PEI’s Chief Nursing Officer, in today’s media briefing, booking these appointments allows for more spacing between patients and ensures Health PEI is able to provide services safely to Islanders during the pandemic.
