There are times when patients have to wait for a healthcare service or procedure. Sometimes waiting is a necessary part of a patient’s treatment plan.

It’s our goal to reduce unnecessary wait times for healthcare services so Nova Scotians get care when they need it.

Understanding healthcare wait times, including how they are measured, helps patients and care providers use the information to potentially access health services sooner.

People who need emergency surgery, treatment or tests receive these services as quickly as possible. The wait times reported on this website are for elective non-emergency cases only. For urgent health advice call 811 or dial 911 for emergencies.
