Patients who are cared for by one of the Algonquin Family Health Team (AFHT) family physicians/Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are eligible to roster as a member of the AFHT. As a rostered patient with the AFHT, the priority is to provide comprehensive care and continuity of care.
Comprehensive care is enhanced by the following:
- Access to a variety of health services from the AFHT (See Programs & Services)
- Primary nursing care in your physicians’ office
- Collaboration with the Ministry of Health to monitor preventative care measures including immunizations, and screening for breast cancer, cervical and colon cancer
Physician members/NPs of the AFHT ensure continuity of care by providing regular office hours and physician coverage.
Speak to your doctor about rostering with the AFHT.
