Looking for a doctor?

If you are currently seeking a family doctor please contact Health Care Connect at
1-800-445-1822 to register for the unattached patient database. Health Care Connect is a program that was created by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to identify and place unattached patients across the province of Ontario with primary care providers.

It is critical that all unattached patients in Peterborough City and County register with this provincial program to ensure their prioritization on the new provincial database.

Health Care Connect will refer people without a family health care provider to physicians and nurse practitioners who are accepting new patients within their communities. After an individual has registered with Health Care Connect a registered nurse called a Care Connector will be assigned to each unattached patient to assist them in finding a health care provider in their area. All individuals registering with Health Care Connect must have a valid OHIP card to participate in the program.

More information on Health Care Connect is available on-line at www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/programs/hco/
