Northumberland Family Health Team and our associated medical clinics are introducing Online Appointment Booking! This has been made possible through our partnership with the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland and funding from Ontario Health.
Online appointment booking allows you to easily and conveniently book an appointment with your healthcare provider, receive optional reminders about upcoming appointments, and helps our healthcare providers and administrative staff to better serve you by reducing call volumes and by collecting helpful information prior to your visit.
Online Appointment Booking is being introduced gradually at our clinics and services with the goal of eventually being widely available for most provider and appointment types.
Currently, online appointment booking is available for:
Cobourg Health Centre
Same Day After Hours Appointments
The Cobourg Health Center After Hours Clinic is for urgent same day appointments only. You must be a patient of the Cobourg Health Center to book. To see if your doctor is at CHC and for more information about the CHC After Hours Clinic, please click here.
