About Us

Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT) was one of the first Family Health Teams in Ontario. We are deeply rooted into the City and County of Peterborough and are a trusted source for family medicine. We provide a team-based approach to patient care through our compassionate and caring staff.

In our model of care, we support the family doctors working within the Family Health Organizations (FHO). There are five (5) FHOs, which may have one or multiple clinics where patients receive the care they need; some of these clinics may also include partnering specialist and labs.

Health Care Professionals:

Our Allied Health Professionals consist of:

  • Mental Health Clinicians
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Pharmacists
  • Physician Assistant
  • Registered Dietitians
  • Registered Nurses / Registered Practical Nurses

We also have administrative employees that help with: booking appointments, planning programs, collecting data, creating community relationship and much more.

In the City & County of Peterborough, we are lucky to have almost all of Peterborough’s family doctors working in our model of care. This means you, the patient, can receive care from the allied health professionals listed above. Also, you have the opportunity to attend our programs and services.

How is PFHT funded?

We are a not-for-profit, charitable organization funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. We are also fortunate to be supported by the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation, Your Family Health Team Foundation.
