Primary Care Clinics
Primary Health Care

A primary care clinic provides short-term primary medical care for people on the Need a Family Practice Registry.

Most appointments will be provided over the phone. In some cases, you may be offered a video appointment. The primary care provider will determine if you need to be seen in-person based on your health care need.

How can I make an appointment?

Primary care clinics do not offer walk-in services. All appointments must be pre-booked, and are for people who do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner.

If you do not have a primary care provider, please add your name to the Need a Family Practice Registry online.

People on the registry, including those who are patients of a primary care clinic, are assisted with finding a primary care provider in their area when Nova Scotia Health is aware of family practices accepting new patients.
