The Northern Zone of the Nova Scotia Health Authority is seeking family practitioners! The Northern Zone is supported by three regional facilities, as well as a number of community hospitals and health centres. Specialty services are distributed among the three regional hospitals located in Truro, New Glasgow and Amherst.
The Northern Zone is located in the hub of Nova Scotia where all roads meet in the middle of the province. This is the part of the province where people come to play on the shores of the Northumberland Strait that offer the best beachcombing and warmest swimming in the Province.

Truro is home to industry and a modern town located on the famous Bay of Fundy and a short drive to the Five Islands Provincial Park with beautiful shores of red clay and fossil finds.
