For several days, it has been difficult to obtain an appointment for a blood test in the Sept-Îles region. By carrying out a search for an appointment on the Clic Santé site by a member of the Arsenal Media team, we found that you have to wait until February to have your blood sampled (according to a postal code in Sept -Islands used for research).
The CISSS Côte-Nord communications department explains that there are indeed delays in obtaining an appointment for a sample at the Sept-Îles Hospital due to the absence of certain staff members.
According to the CISSS Côte-Nord, the CIUSSS du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, which is responsible for laboratory services (Optilab), is trying to find solutions to allow appointments to be obtained more quickly. Appointment slots should be added next week.
“An appointment can be made on the clicsante.ca website or by calling 1 833 704-0087. It is not possible to show up without an appointment. For urgent samples, users are invited to call the appointment centre. “recalls the communications department of the CISSS Côte-Nord.
