14,000 More Nova Scotians to Gain Access to Primary Care

Nova Scotia’s population is getting older, and our healthcare needs are evolving. As Liberals, we know we need to think differently about how and where we deliver healthcare services across this province, and how we make the best use of the infrastructure we have.

Your Liberal government believes collaborative care is the solution. That’s why we’re committed to expanding and strengthening collaborative care teams across Nova Scotia.

Today, we were proud to announce 23 more nurse practitioners and family practice nurses are joining 12 communities across our province. As a result, 14 practices are expanding and will be able to start taking on new patients. This has already started to take place in Digby, Westville, and Cheticamp.

 

Part of Our Continued Commitment to Health Care

Improving access to primary health care for Nova Scotians remains one of our top priorities. Your Liberal government is taking steps to modernize the health care facilities we have, and making strategic investments to help make sure Nova Scotians have the care they need, when they need it.

Today’s announcement will benefit everyone in our province, and it proves your Liberal government has a plan to address the health care needs of Nova Scotians.
