A unique health care service in Saskatoon is catching the eye of emergency medical professionals across the country.
The Saskatoon Health Bus is staffed with a paramedic and a nurse practitioner. It is open 7 days a week, travelling to a new location in Saskatoon's core each day. Patients can receive treatment for everything from coughs and colds to minor emergencies.
The bus has become a leader in community medicine because of the expanded role it allows paramedics to help in caring for people in non-urgent situations.
