Those without a family doctor can use northumberlandcare.com to speak to the next available family doctor and find out how to contact their office during specified times. It is anticipated that a doctor will be available for 3 hours a day, 6 days a week.

Are you looking for a Family Doctor?
We do not keep a waiting list for people looking for a family doctor.
Health Care Connect is a program that helps you find a doctor if you don’t have one. It is run by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. You can also use the program to change family health care providers, but only after you drop off your current family health care provider’s patient list. Once you register with Health Care Connect a Care Connector will search for a doctor in our community that is accepting new patients. About 80% of people who join the program find a family health care provider this way.
You can reach Health Care Connect at 1-800-445-1822 or visit Ontario.ca/healthcareconnect.
Our family doctors will notify Health Care Connect directly when they are rostering new patients.
