Patient Information

You are considered a patient of the Northumberland Family Health Team (NFHT) if you are enrolled to one of the 20 family doctors listed on our Hours of Operation Page. Your family doctor will now have the opportunity to work with other health care professionals to provide a group approach to your primary health care needs.

What does the Northumberland Family Health Team mean to me – the patient?

As a patient you now have access to many new no cost services and programs to help you meet your health care goals. You will continue to see your family doctor on a regular basis, however, other members of the NFHT may assist your doctor in providing primary healthcare services.

Example: You may have an appointment with your family doctor where it is determined that you have a respiratory problem (eg. Asthma). Your family doctor may then refer you to the NFHT “Healthy Lung Program” where you will first see the Registered Nurse at your doctor’s office and then you will have an appointment with the Respiratory Therapist within the NFHT offices. The Respiratory Therapist will then communicate all pertinent health information back to your family doctor.

Referral Process and Location of Services and Programs

You will continue to visit your family doctor at their current office location.

If you are referred by your doctor to see one of the health care professionals your doctor will send a referral to the NFHT main office. The administrative staff at the NFHT main office will contact you to schedule an appointment.

All health care professional visits will occur at the NFHT main office on the lower level of the Northumberland Mall.

COVID & FLU SHOTS, Masking

Covid and flu shot appointments are available at our clinic in the lower level of the Northumberland Mall on Wednesdays and Thursdays. To book online click here or you can call 289-252-2139. For more information click here for covid or here for flu.

 

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.
