Team-based Primary Health Care in Guelph
Welcome to the Guelph Family Health Team home page!
The Guelph Family Health Team provides a team-based approach to primary care in many locations across the city of Guelph. Family doctors and other members of the care team support patients to maintain their health and prevent and treat illness. With funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, the Guelph Family Health Team is improving the way people experience health care in Guelph.
Patients of the Guelph Family Health Team have access to a range of supports including family doctors and other clinicians, after hours and specialized clinics. We truly believe a healthy community is good for everyone, and we provide free wellness programs and classes for all residents of the Guelph area.
