There’s still time to register for a free program for cancer survivors who finished treatment and are adjusting to life after cancer care. Cancer Transitions: Moving Beyond Treatment is a seven-week support program for people who have completed cancer treatment. It is offered free of charge through funding support from the Cape Breton Cancer Centre and the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation.
Visitor restrictions are lifted on Unit 5E, an acute care medical unit at Northside General Hospital in North Sydney. The restrictions were put in place in March to help limit the spread of respiratory illness among patients on the 15-bed unit.
Visitor restrictions have been lifted on the medical surgery unit at South Shore Regional Hospital. The restrictions were put in place late last week to help limit the spread of a gastrointestinal illness among patients on the unit.
