First aid treatment from Health Services
During clinic hours, Health Services is available as a First Aid Treatment Centre for employees and visitors. A clinic nurse will assess employees and visitors who are injured or have an urgent illness while at work. The nurse will arrange treatment and evaluation by a physician, if necessary. Unfortunately, we are unable to act as the family physician for employees.
Health Services' clinic nurses are pleased to assist with the following:
- Routine allergy shots (with permission of the employee's Physician)
- Flu shots and other routine immunizations (booked in advance)
- Blood pressure monitoring
- The Wart Clinic at Health Service is open to all employees. Contact Health Services to book an appointment.
