Government of New Brunswick


Patient Connect NB is a provincially managed, bilingual patient registry for New Brunswickers without a primary health-care provider.


Anyone who is eligible for a New Brunswick Medicare card is eligible to register with Patient Connect NB.

New Brunswickers without a family doctor can register with Patient Connect NB and will be assigned to a doctor or nurse practitioner on a first-come, first-serve basis. Those who are already on a no-physician list do not need to re-register as they have already been added to the new patient registry and have maintained priority.

People currently living outside the province but planning to move to New Brunswick can register for Patient Connect NB but must have a valid Medicare card from another Canadian province to register.


The Patient Connect NB registry is a well-managed resource that will match patients with primary health-care providers who are able to take them into their practice. The new registry is managed by Tele-Care 811 and has replaced all of the province’s no-physician lists operated by Horizon Health Network.

Those wishing to be added to the registry can do so online (see related links) or by calling Tele-Care 811.
