Health Links is a confidential, free health information and referral service for the public staffed by Registered Nurses 24 hours a day.

The nurses ask a series of questions about the concern and then direct callers to the level of medical care appropriate for the symptoms.

They use an approved computerized program and document each call. Because they have to document each call for legal reasons
they will ask for your name, address, telephone number and birthdate.
 This information is confidential and never used outside of the Health Links department.
