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.

Northumberland Family Health Team (NFHT) serves over 26,000 patients of 20 local family doctors who work together with other health care professionals to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for their enrolled patients. Our affiliated medical clinics include Cobourg Clinic, Cobourg Health Centre and Cobourg Medical Centre.

NFHT offers primary and preventative health care services to patients of the participating doctors.

The health care professionals include: Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Dietitians, an Occupational Therapist, a Chiropodist, Social Workers, 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.

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.

Ontario’s Ministry of Health has created a dedicated web page where you can learn more about this coronavirus and find daily updates (https://www.ontario.ca/page/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov).
