Health Care Connect - Find a family health care provider
Health Care Connect is a program launched by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to help Ontarians without a family health care provider find one. The program refers people without a regular family health care provider to physicians and nurse practitioners who are accepting new patients in their community. If you don’t have a provider you can register for the Health Care Connect program by calling 1-800-445-1822. Telephone services will be available Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in English and French with 120 other languages available, as required.
By registering with Health Care Connect, you will be assigned a Care Connector to help you find family health care in your community.
Currently, there are a number of family doctors who are accepting patients in London and its surrounding areas. They include some with specialties and practitioners in facilities offering onsite "integrated care" services.
London & District Academy of Medicine
The London and District Academy of Medicine is a professional medical association representing member physicians in London and surrounding area. This website's "Find a Doctor" page provides a listing of physicians accepting patients.
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario
The "Doctor Search" function of The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO) was discontinued June 4, 2009. The Finding a new doctor section of the website now references the Health Care Connect program. A listing of all family doctors in London may be obtained through the website - the CPSO advises that this can be helpful to anyone interested in contacting physicians in locations close to work or home to see if new patients are being accepted.
