Family Health Teams are health care organizations that include a team of family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers, dieticians, and other professionals who work together to provide health care for their community. Family Health Teams provide more service and a wide range of health options, especially for people who don’t have a doctor.


Family Health Teams ensure that people receive the care they need in their communities, as each team is set-up based on local health and community needs. They focus on chronic disease management, disease prevention and health promotion, and work with other health care organizations, such as public health units and Community Care Access Centres.

If you have a Smart Phone with data, or a home computer with streaming capabilities, you may be eligible for this free, private and new service.
