HealthLink BC

Some of British Columbia's most trusted and recognized health information and services are consolidated at HealthLink BC. HealthLink BC brings together existing and reliable services that British Columbians count on for health information - Nursing Services, Dietitian Services, Pharmacist After Hours, HealthLink BC Files, and the BC HealthGuide Handbook - and expanded these with an online and phone service to help B.C. residents find the health resources and facilities they need, closest to where they live. HealthLink BC is the gateway to access non-emergency health information and services in British Columbia. It is a phone number, and it is a website; it is a collection of print and telephone resources that puts services and health know-how into the hands and homes of B.C. residents. Through HealthLink BC programs and services, you can get the information you need to manage your health concerns or those of your family. Translation services are available in over 130 languages, upon request.

Visit HealthLink BC's website for medically-approved information on more than 5,000 health topics and over 5,800 health services in a searchable database, along with reliable information on prescription and over-the-counter drugs. You can also find HealthLink BC Files, or fact sheets, on public health and safety topics. Any time of the day or night, every day of the year, British Columbians have trusted health information at their fingertips, just a phone call or a click away with HealthLink BC.
