Health Links – Info Santé

A program of the Provincial Health Contact Centre

Health Links – Info Santé Nurse answering calls

Health Links – Info Santé, the flagship program of the Provincial Health Contact Centre, was the first bilingual phone-based nursing triage system in Canada.

Health Links – Info Santé, available to all Manitobans, operates 24/7, 365 days of the year with a team of registered nurses answering more than 114,000 calls annually in English and French with service in more than 100 other languages available through over-the-phone interpreters.

Nurses follow assessment guidelines to triage health issues – everything from flu symptoms to child fevers to heart attacks. Callers are given advice as to what health-care path should be followed: call 911; visit an emergency department, urgent care, walk-in clinic or family physician; or advice and education are given about managing symptoms at home.

Health Links – Info Santé nurses also provide general health information and help callers find health resources in local communities across Manitoba.

Other public health services such as the Breastfeeding Hotline, West Nile virus, rabies and influenza support are available to callers through Health Links – Info Santé.

To speak to a Health Links – Info Santé registered nurse, please call 204-788-8200 or toll-free 1-888-315-9257.
