NEW WATER­FORD — The un­avail­abil­ity of physi­cians will mean sev­eral tem­po­rary clo­sures of the emer­gency depart­ment at the New Water­ford Con­sol­i­dated Hos­pi­tal.

The depart­ment will close Wed­nes­day and re­main closed un­til Thurs­day at 7 a.m. A sec­ond clo­sure this week will be­gin on Fri­day and end at 7 a.m. on Satur­day.

If you have an emer­gency dur­ing any of these times, the Nova Sco­tia Health Author­ity ad­vises you to call 911 or go to the near­est open emer­gency depart­ment.

For non-emer­gency health advice from a reg­is­tered nurse, call 811. The provin­cial Men­tal Health Cri­sis Line op­er­ates 24 hours a day and seven days a week at 1-888429-8167.
