Salisbury Primary Health Care Office

New Brunswick’s Horizon Health Network has officially announced the opening of the Salisbury Primary Health Care Office. Located at Salisbury Pharmacy at 3154 Main Street and staffed by Nurse Practitioner Jaelle Poirier and Administrator Krista Ogilvie, the office is open two days each week with a mandate to serve residents of the region who are currently without access to a primary health care provider; that is, a family doctor or nurse practitioner. Potential patients must register in advance via Patient Connect NB, which can be accessed by phoning Tele-Care (811) or visiting Tele-Care online (https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/departments/health/Hospital-Services/content/Patient_Connect_NB.html). Patients are seen on Mondays and Fridays between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm by appointment only, while Tuesdays will be administration days. There will be no after-hours or walk-in appointments offered. In a press release, Kathleen Buchanen, Horizon’s Director of Primary Health Care for the Moncton Area, says patients who have registered with Patient Connect NB “are being contacted and the reception has been positive.” Horizon Vice President Community Jean Daigle notes that “none of this would have been possible without the collaboration from the Village of Salisbury.” Nurse practitioners are trained to diagnose and treat common acute health problems, monitor and manage chronic diseases, and prescribe diagnostic testing, medications, and other treatments.

Pothole Season

Although it is a welcome season following a hard Winter, Spring, unfortunately, is also the season of potholes. Potholes are brought on by the many freeze-thaw cycles that wreak havoc on the asphalt after water gets into the cracks formed by the wear and tear of traffic. During the first month or so of Spring, our Salisbury Works Department, like other municipal public works departments throughout New Brunswick, tackles the potholes that form on our Village-maintained roadways by way of what’s called “cold patch asphalt.” This serves as a temporary solution until the hot asphalt plants open midway through the season. After these facilities open, contractors are scheduled to apply more permanent fixes to the municipal pothole problem. If you have concerns about any potholes in particular that are located on our municipal streets in the Village, our Works Department can be reached through the Village Office at 372-3230. However, it must be noted that it is the New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure that maintains three of the main roads within the Village limits, those being Route 112 (River Road and Fredericton Road) and Route 106 (Main Street/Salisbury Road). These three routes are “Provincially Designated Highways” and any concerns about them should be phoned in to the Salisbury DTI garage (372-3302) or to MLA Mike Holland at his constituency office at 1037 Route 114 in Lower Coverdale (856-4961).
