Another doctor is closing their primary care practice in Sackville.

Dr. Adrian Kelly has announced he will be closing his practice as of December 15 this year. In a letter to patients shared on social media, Dr. Kelly says he was unsuccessful in convincing Horizon to accept any of his patients in the new Sackville primary care clinic.

Soon-to-be-former patient Nancy Oulton says she respects Kelly's decision, even if his departure from primary care means she will be without a doctor for the first time in her life, with no clear prospects for finding a new one.

CHMA called up Oulton on Wednedday to find out more about her situation.
