Unattached Patients Seeking Care

An unattached patient is someone who does not have access to a family doctor or nurse practitioner. When unattached patients are ill, they must utilize a walk-in clinic or emergency department.

Peterborough Family Health Team has launched two new clinics to meet the health needs of these people and are working to connect them with a new family doctor joining our community. If you currently have a family doctor and are looking for care, call your family doctor or visit the Extended Hours Service.

I am looking for:
