The Regency Park Family Practice Team

We no longer offer Walk-in, however, we do offer a Duty Clinic. We do maintain limited openings for general public access. The Duty Clinic requires appointments to be booked in advance of your arrival to the clinic.

The majority of appointments are available to our rostered patients within the practice for more urgent issues that arise. This service assists when an appointment with your regular family doctor is not readily available.

Examples of visits we might see in our duty clinic include: UTI’s and other possible infections, sore throats or sore ears, tick bites, routine medication refills (narcotics are not prescribed). The Duty Clinic cannot provide emergency level services nor can we follow your care on a regular basis like a family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner would do.

If you are in need of a primary care provider, please register with the Province’s patient registry by calling 811 or visiting https://needafamilypractice.nshealth.ca

There are currently no closures affecting our clinic.

If you have a medical concern after-hours, please call 811 to speak with a registered nurse.

If you have a medical emergency, please call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency department.
