Working Together for Health and Wellness
The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides this definition of a Family Health Team:
"Family Health Team is an approach to primary health care that brings together different health care providers to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for you - the patient."
The Barrie and Community Family Health Team is one of 200 Family Health Teams that were created as part of the Ontario government's plan to reduce wait times and improve access to quality health care for Ontario residents. Since opening our doors in 2006, we have strived to enhance the care that is provided to patients and families within our community by offering a variety of programs and services that support healthy living and overall wellness.
Family doctors belonging to our Family Health Team work with our team of skilled healthcare professionals to give you the best care possible and assist you with managing your health.
