Finding a Doctor

Health Care Connect

To get connected with a doctor, register with Health Care Connect – a program designed to help you find a family health care provider. To register by phone, dial 1-800-445-1822. Click here to register with Health Care Connect online.

You can also find a doctor and contact their practice yourself, using the All Doctors Search by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.

Nurse Practitioners

If you do not have a family doctor, you can also visit a nurse practitioner. To learn more about Nurse Practitioners visit the Nurse Practitioners Association of Ontario website.

Chatham-Kent Community Health Centers

You can also connect with one of Chatham-Kent's Community Health Centres. These centres offer a comprehensive approach to improving the health care of individuals, families and communities.

Home and Community Care Support Services

Ontario's Home and Community Care Support Services organizations, including the Erie St. Clair branch which covers the Chatham-Kent area, coordinate in-home and community-based care. These services assess patient care needs, deliver in-home and community-based services, provide access and referrals to other community services, and manage Ontario's long-term care home placement process. Home and Community Care Support Services collaborate with primary care providers, hospitals, Ontario Health Teams and many other health system partners to support high-quality, integrated care planning and delivery.
