I am a Patient

Patients of the Peterborough Family Health Team (PFHT) are enrolled or rostered with a Primary Health Care Physician, also known as a family doctor, who work alongside us.


Are you unsure if your doctor is connected with us?

We list all of our healthcare providers, including family doctors, on our Find a Provider page. If you’re family doctor is listed then you are being cared for by our great team!


Be active in your healthcare

As a patient, there are different ways you can be active in your healthcare, such as:

  • When you feel ill, seek care from your family doctor first – they know you best and have your medical history recorded. Come to your appointments prepared. Have your Health Card, questions and medication list ready to discuss with your family doctors or healthcare provider.
  • If it is after hours and you need care, visit your clinic’s Extended Hours Service and avoid unnecessary visits to the hospital’s emergency department (please note – if it is an emergency, we highly encourage you to visit the emergency department).
  • It’s okay if you can no longer make your appointment, just let us know! There may be other patients who are looking for an appointment that same day.

If you’ve heard of the Family Health Team’s Programs and Services, talk to your healthcare provider today to see if they are right for you.
