Unattached Patients Seeking Care

Unattached patients are those individuals who do not have access to a family doctor or nurse practitioner in Peterborough City and County. When these people are ill, they must go to a walk-in clinic or emergency department.

Our Unattached Clinics can care for Peterborough residents without a health care provider, or whose provider is outside of the county.

In addition, we can place you on a local wait list for a local family doctor.

If you currently have a family doctor and are looking for care, call your family doctor or visit the Extended Hours Service.
