3 new doctors, family practice nurse coming to Digby

Three new doctors and a new family practice nurse will soon be arriving in Digby.

The Nova Scotia government says that means 10,000 people in the area will have access to primary care.

Officials say the three new doctors will join three nurse practitioners already working in Digby in September.

One of the nurse practitioners, brought on temporarily last fall, will become a permanent member of the team.

The new family practice nurse is expected to start sometime this spring.

Clare-Digby MLA Gordon Wilson says once the team is complete, everyone in Digby and surrounding areas will have access to a family practice.
