Need a Family Doctor?

Many people in Peterborough City and County have not had a family doctor for many, many years. Others have stayed with their family doctor located hours away as they couldn’t find a family doctor close to where they live.

Our goal is to find YOU the best care to suit your needs within our community.

Please read through the 2 options below, select the one that best describes you, and complete the form (there is no wrong option.) This will place you on our local wait list for a family doctor. Please note: This is NOT the Health Care Connect list.

If you are already attached to a family doctor in Peterborough City or County this does not apply to you. Please do not complete either form.

We cannot predict the length of time that a person may wait, but you will be placed as soon as possible. If you need care while you are waiting, please visit one of our clinics for unattached patients.
