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.

Clinics for unattached patients


PFHT Clinic

The PFHT Clinic supports  residents living in the rural countryside of Peterborough County who do not currently have a family doctor. During the summer months, some appointments are also available for seasonal residents/visitors to the area.

Important Clinic Information During COVID-19 Pandemic:

Patients seeking care must book an appointment, walk-ins will NOT be accepted. The hours of the clinic will flex day to day dependent on COVID-19 precautions as well as demand. Where possible, appointments will take place virtually (either via phone or using video conference through the Ontario Telemedicine Network)

If you are a seasonal resident, please contact your own Primary Care Provider first. Due to the pandemic, care is mainly being provided virtually and seeing your own primary care provider is best – they know you and your medical history.
