Residents are reminded to call Health Link at 811, which is available 24/7, for non-emergency, health-related questions. 
Depending on their needs, patients seeking care at the ED in Manning may also be made aware of services available through local pharmacies.  
AHS is grateful for the support of surrounding healthcare centres and medical staff and would like to thank the community for its patience and understanding during this time.
