About Us

Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT) was one of the first Family Health Teams in Ontario and has deeply rooted itself into the City and County of Peterborough as a trusted source for family medicine. As a community partner, PFHT provides a team-based approach to patient care with the compassionate and caring staff working for them.

In this model of care, the PFHT supports 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:

PFHT has multiple Allied Health Professionals who consist of:

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

In addition, we 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 that patients of those doctors are able to receive care from the allied health professionals listed above and attend the programs and services created by PFHT.

How is PFHT funded?

PFHT is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The organization is also supported by the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation, Your Family Health Team Foundation.
