East End Family Health Team - Clinic Background - Health Care for Timmins and Area

Backgrounder


Over the past few years Family Health Teams in Ontario have become a key component of the health care system. Family Health Teams include a number of diverse health care professionals who work alongside family physicians in order to increase access to primary care and create a team approach to addressing patient needs.

Our clinic originated in April 2004 as the provinces first nurse practitioner clinic under the primary health transition fund. The clinic has evolved over the last five years and in April 2006 became the East End Family Health Team. Our team now consists of; a physician, two nurses practitioners, a pharmacist, social workers, a dietician, registered nurses, registered practical nurses and secretarial staff, who will do their best in providing you with accessible and comprehensive care.

With a focus on preventing illness, promoting good health, and improving access to care, we strive to give our patients the opportunity to be active in decision making about their own health.
