The Annapolis Collaborative Practice is located in beautiful western Nova Scotia and services the town of Annapolis Royal and surrounding region.  Our population base is 12,000 to 14,000 people.  We currently employ three full-time and two part-time physicians, a nurse practitioner, a family practice nurse and support staff.  The pace is busy and challenging.

The Annapolis Collaborative Practice offers a unique, supportive, and collaborative approach to primary care in Nova Scotia; with the main focus on providing comprehensive patient care.  The practice is one of the very best in rural medicine providing a conductive and friendly team environment with the opportunity to employ a broad range of skills.  We offer continuing medical education sessions twice a month, an electronic medical records system (Nightingale™), the opportunity to specialize or focus on individual interests, and a teaching environment for both medical students and residents — all within a culturally vibrant setting.

As generalists, we provide services across the range of pediatric, adult and geriatric medicine.  As a multi-disciplinary team we manage trauma, acute urgent and emergency care, and the full spectrum of chronic conditions including cardiac, respiratory and diabetic care.  We also cover the usual range of intercurrent illnesses, prenatal and well-baby care, minor surgical procedures and primary prevention.

Our spacious and newly renovated office is located inside the Annapolis Community Health Centre (ACHC) which offers laboratory services, diagnostic imaging, cardiac investigation services, inpatient and palliative care beds, rehabilitation services, diabetes centre, mental health services, public health services, continuing care, and specialist traveling clinics.  Collectively we consult and collaborate with each other with mutual respect and in doing so we strive to provide a comprehensive patient-centered model of care.  Inter-professional rounds within ACHC take place every morning where the team can gather and discuss patient care needs.  On-call rotations are approximately one day a week and one weekend a month within ACHC and calls can be taken from home.
