At the HPHA, our goal and commitment to our communities is to ensure all residents of our catchment area are rostered to a local primary care practitioner.
Programs in place, such as Health Care Connect, are designed to assist us in identifying those who are without access to primary care. We recognize that these programs may not always be reflective of the entire picture, which is why the HPHA has developed a short survey that will help us understand the number of patients travelling to other communities for care.
We continue to encourage people who do not have a family physician to register with Health Care Connect. This can be done through the following ways:
If you do have a family physician but are travelling to see that physician and would prefer to receive care locally, please register through this survey:
If you require assistance to complete the survey, please contact:
Laurie Roberts, Corporate Lead Medical Staff, 519-272-8210, Ext. 2426
Registered patients will be contacted by Health Care Connect when a family physician and/or nurse practitioner are available.
As a reminder, patients requiring immediate care should go to their closest Emergency Department.
