A new nurse practitioner clinic opened its doors in Keswick on Wednesday.

Health Minister Dorothy Sheppard says in a release that strong primary health care is critical to ensuring that people can get the health care they need at the right time and in the right place, through the right provider.

The Department of Health says the clinic, located in the Keswick Pharmacy, will open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday until mid-June, when it will be open for the entire work week.

Government says the clinic will take on patients from the Patient Connect NB list who are without a family doctor or nurse practitioner.
