Access to the Family Health Team

How do I access the Great Northern Family Health Team?

Your doctor's office may refer you directly to the Family Health Team to schedule an appointment for your care.

Assuming you are a rostered patient of the Great Northern Family Health Team, you can self-refer to see a member of our interdisciplinary team or participate in the programs we offer.

Minimizing Emergency Room Visits

Our goal is to provide you with timely access to care and to mininize Emergency Room visits for non-urgent situations.

Before visiting the Emergency Room, contact your family physician for care.

If you are unable to access your family physician, please contact the Family Health Team at (705) 647-6100.

We will confirm that you are rostered with our team and then organize with you to see the appropriate provider for your needs.
