Nurse Practitioners 

(Primary Care Services) 

Appointments:  (807) 223-7406

Nurse Practitioners are Registered Nurses with additional education and nursing experience.  Primary health care NPs generally work in community settings and provide primary health care services to people of all ages.  They work collaboratively with other health care providers to provide quality care for patients.  Nurse Practitioners are able to provide individuals with health services in health promotion, preventative care screening, and chronic disease management.

Appointments with the Nurse Practitioners are booked one week at a time.  Each Monday morning we start scheduling appointments for the current week. This means that you can be seen for your health care needs as you

require them. 

Some examples of the types of health care services provided by our Nurse Practitioners include: 

  • Diagnose and treat acute illnesses (eg. minor injuries, cough/cold)                   

  • Perform physicals

  • Chronic disease management (eg. Diabetes/Hypertension) 

  • General health & wellness 

  • Referrals to other health care professionals (eg home care, specialists) 

  • Immunizations

  • Drivers Medicals physicals

  • Patient counselling (eg. mental health & family planning) 

  • Prescriptions / medications

  • Preventative screening (eg. cancer screening)
