Special Patient Program

If you or a loved one has a complex or rare illness or injury that requires its own medical care protocols, talk to your doctor about the EHS Special Patient Program.

The program ensures that paramedics know about the patient's special needs – so when EHS is called to help, our paramedics will have quick access to the information they need about your loved one.

Applications must be submitted by a physician. Download Special Patient Application in PDF format.

For more information about the Special Patient Program, contact the Office of the Provincial Medical Director of Emergency Health Services at 902-424-1729.
