Family Doctors Taking New Patients in Newfoundland and Labrador

If you do not have a primary care provider, please register with Patient Connect NL – the provincial registry for residents of Newfoundland and Labrador who have identified as being without a Primary Care Provider (Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner). The goal of Patient Connect NL is to connect individuals to a primary care provider as soon as one becomes available. Individuals may register for Patient Connect NL online or by telephone at 1-833-913-4679.
