August 7, 2020 | People and families living in Surrey will soon have access to more quality primary health-care services with the opening of a new nurse practitioner primary care clinic.
Patients can register to be attached to the clinic on Monday, Aug. 10, which will open Sept. 8, 2020.
The Province is launching Axis Primary Care Clinic, in collaboration with the Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC, Fraser Health and the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice, to provide team-based primary care services to residents.
“Nurse practitioner primary care clinics are developed and run by nurse practitioners and are an integral part of our government’s comprehensive strategy to transform B.C.’s health-care system,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “The clinics are a patient-centred solution to improving access to the everyday health care, and we know that compared to other jurisdictions in Canada, B.C. has not made the best use of nurse practitioners. The Axis Primary Care Clinic will help connect more people with the care they need, when they need it, closer to home.”
