Welcome to the Northumberland Family Health Team

Family Health Teams are patient-centred primary care organizations that offer patients access to a number of primary health care services from a variety of team members, beyond a family doctor.

The Northumberland Family Health Team (NFHT) is a doctor-led Family Health Team currently made up of 21 local family doctors who work together with other health care professionals to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for their enrolled patients.

The NFHT offers primary and preventative health care services to patients of the participating doctors. These patients are residents of the Town of Cobourg, Municipality of Port Hope, Township of Hamilton, Township of Alnwick/Haldimand and surrounding area.

The NFHT consists of 21 family doctors, with 26,000+ enrolled patients, who work with a support and management team and 17 other health care professionals. These health care professionals include: Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Dietitians, an Occupational Therapist, a Respiratory Therapist, a Chiropodist, a Social Worker, a Mental Health Clinician, a Pharmacist, and a Physiotherapist. Each health care professional has special training, skills and experience and will work with the family doctors to provide primary health care to patients and their families.

The NFHT emphasizes health promotion and improved management of chronic disease through treatment and monitoring as well as supporting their patients in improving self-management skills. Programs and services are being developed based on a strategic review of the health care needs of the patients and the community needs.
