KENTVILLE, N.S. – Nova Scotia Health continues to expand self-registration kiosks to health facilities across the province, with seven more locations beginning to offer this service in the organization’s Western Zone. This is in addition to health facilities in Halifax Regional Municipality and four locations that implemented this service earlier this month in Nova Scotia Health’s Eastern Zone.
“We are pleased that a self-registration option will be available to our patients and clients in western Nova Scotia, it will help reduce wait times at the point of registration and make it easier for patients and clients visiting our health care facilities,” said Alyson Lamb, Western Zone Executive Director Health Services.
Patients and clients will still have the option to register in person when they arrive for their appointment and some clinics will continue to require face-to-face registration.
On Thursday, May 25, Fisherman’s Memorial Hospital in Lunenburg will be the first location in Western Zone to offer patients and clients an alternative to in-person registration for select clinic appointments, including:

In June, three more Nova Scotia Health facilities will begin to offer this service in Northern Zone. The expansion of this service supports Nova Scotia’s Action for Health Plan to improve patient access and flow across the system.
