Service Description

The Need a Family Practice Registry assists Nova Scotians who are looking for a primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner).

Registration can be completed by calling 811 during registration hours or on the website.

The registration process now also includes an intake survey to help the Registry identify a provider and primary health care services that meet the person's needs.

Anyone who is currently on the Registry will be contacted by Nova Scotia Health by email, letter or phone and encouraged to update their health profile. Profiles can be updated on the website or by phone.


Open to all who do not have a family doctor or nurse practitioner
