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.

 

COVID 19 Updates

COVID-19 vaccinations are available for all ages.  Please call 289-252-2139 to book an appointment. Clinics run Mon and Thurs 1-4pm. Children 5 – 11yrs are only seen on Thurs.

 

If you have an in-person appointment with a health care provider at any of the NFHT offices, you do still need to wear a procedure mask inside of our office – we can provide one. These infection control protocols are to protect our patients and staff.
