Nurses for Kingston

Stand up. Speak up. Be part of the solution.

Our Mission

Kingston has a great number of very highly skilled, highly trained professionals within the city that can meet the needs of the people. The problem is, as you've seen in the news, particularly with physicians, there's not enough of them. So patients end up going to the emergency department for non-urgent issues.

Our Mission is to enhance access to non-emergent health care services. We aim to establish the first hybrid Nurse Practitioner led clinic in Ontario. We will be able to provide both comprehensive health care services to membership clients; and an additional walk-in urgent care clinic with an open door policy.

We believe strongly in equitable access to health care services for all and will continue advocating for OHIP billing privileges for Nurse Practitioner services. We encourage all persons to sign our petition and demand the Ontario Government provide funding for all health care services that reasonably should be covered under the Provincial Health Insurance Plan.

Who are we?

We are a group of Kingston-Area Nurse Practitioners and Allied Health Care Providers already practicing in Kingston

We see, first-hand, the potential of Nurse Practitioners to meet the health care needs of our community, and we want to utilize Nurse Practitioners and Allied Health professionals to help address the primary care crisis in Kingston. We submitted a Business Proposal to Ontario Health in 2023 seeking provincial funding to support expansion of primary care services at no cost to citizens. Sadly, the Ontario Health Team declined provincial funding for our project; and many other Ontario Nurse Practitioner Clinic proposals. As a result, thousands of Kingstonians, and millions of Ontarians will remain without access to essential health care services. While we remain committed to advocating for public funds for these services, we recognize that many people will suffer worsening health outcomes without access to health care. We feel it is in the best interest of the public to move forward with the establishment of a local NP led clinic as soon as reasonably possible, and we are exploring other funding options, including private pay options, to ensure the establishment of expanded local health care services.
