Interprofessional Healthcare Providers (IHPs)

The Family Health Team is a way of providing health care to you and your family.  It is a team approach that brings together family doctors with other health care providers in order to coordinate the best possible care for patients.  Everyone on the team works together to meet your needs.  Their focus is on keeping you and your family healthy, not just treating you when you are sick.

When you enrol as a patient with a Family Health Team, you are taking a step to ensure that you always have ready access to a team of health care providers.  Our team includes:

Nurse Practitioners (NP) provides same day and next day appointments for acute and episodic health concerns while providing leadership and support to OSFHT programs that help patients manage their chronic illnesses. www.npao.org
