New Health Clinics Boost For Doctors & Others

New collaborative health care clinics opening soon in Bridgewater and Liverpool will go a long way in improving health care on the South Shore. Nova Scotia Health Minister Leo Glavine says they'll also provide a professional boost for doctors and nurse practitioners.

The minister also says the clinics will also help relieve the work loads of ER's at hospitals in Lunenburg, Bridgewater and Liverpool.

The Bridgewater facility will be opening in a few weeks and the one in Liverpool later in the year.
