Are You Looking for a Family Doctor?
OpMD is a program offered by the New Brunswick Military Resource Centre that connects Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) families currently posted in Gagetown area with a family doctor.
Who is eligible?
All serving CAF members’ dependents and spouses are welcome to access this program.
How does the program work?
Like the provincial “Patient Connect” registry the list will work on a first come first served basis. As providers have capacity in their practice will contact the OpMD program to advise that they are able to take patients, OpMD will then select the appropriate number of patients from the registry and send their information to the doctor or nurse practitioner. Patients will be advised via email or phone they are being assigned to a provider.
How long will I wait?
It is important to note that it is difficult to tell exactly how long patients will have to wait since there are many things that impact the regions patient capacity; area, recruiting by the regional health authorities, etc. Our goal is always to match families with the least amount of delays.
