HOW TO BECOME A PATIENT

If you have a physician or nurse practitioner in Haliburton or Minden, please follow Programs and Services to access program and service information.

Unattached patients can call the Ontario Ministry of Health’s Health Care Connect Program at 1-800-445-1822 Monday to Friday, or go online to ontario.ca/healthcareconnect to register with the program. To successfully register, unattached patients must have a valid OHIP card and complete a health questionnaire to determine their need for family health care services. Priority is given to individuals who have greater health needs.  Once registered, program participants are assigned to a Care Connector who is employed by the Central East Local Health Integrated Network.  Care Connectors work with family physicians and nurse practitioners who are accepting new patients.
