About the Peterborough Family Health Team

With more than 115,000 patients in its care, the Peterborough Family Health Team  (FHT) is well positioned to continue to make a significant difference in the health of its community. The organization was a leader in the formation of the family health team model – the answer to a crisis in primary care ten years ago, when one in five residents in the City and County of Peterborough didn’t have access to a family doctor. Since then, the FHT has ensured that an additional 20,000 Peterborough patients now have family doctors and access to team-based primary care. And today, as the only city and region of its size in the province in which virtually all family doctors are part of the FHT, the organization is poised to be a primary care leader in the next stage of health system transformation.

The FHT Today

  • 88 of 89 family physicians currently have access to FHT resources.
  • 110 FHT members including dietitians, mental health clinicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants, registered nurses, registered practical nurses, support staff, clerical staff, and administrators work together to provide primary care services in our community.
  • The FHT is made up of five Family Health Organizations (FHOs) located at clinics across the city and county, and the Partners in Pregnancy Clinic (PIPC).
