If you do not currently have a family doctor or nurse practitioner, or if you wish to change doctors to receive medical services closer to home, we invite you to fill out the form below. To reduce wait times, please select all locations from which you are willing to receive health care services.
Our mandate is to provide health care services in rural communities of Eastern Ontario. Since there is a shortage of such services in these communities, we must ensure that our services remain available to these underserved areas. As such, we can no longer accept requests from residents in the urban Ottawa region nor are we accepting applications from people living west of Highway 31 (Bank Street).
We realize how difficult it is to find a primary health care provider and how long waiting lists can be. While we make every reasonable effort to provide you with health care services as quickly as possible, we recommend that you register with Health Care Connect at the following: www.ontario.ca/page/find-family-doctor-or-nurse-practitioner to help you in your search.
We make every effort to provide you with health care as soon as possible.

If you have a newborn baby and do not currently have a primary health care provider, please call us to book a priority appointment.
We contact everyone on the waiting list once a year to determine whether services are still required. Individuals are also provided with a list of useful resources while they wait to be seen by our primary health care team. When services become available, they are asked to fill out a form with more detailed information about their current situation and health status. Please note that updates pertaining to our waiting list will not be provided beyond what is made available on this webpage.
