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.

Looking For A Doctor?

Guelph Family Health Team includes more than 80 family doctors in locations all across the city of Guelph. Family Health Team doctors work closely with a team of health care professionals to provide patients with the best care possible. Our care teams include Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Mental Health Counsellors, Clinical Pharmacists, Registered Dietitians, and others. WE also help patients access specialized health and wellness clinics, workshops and programs and other community services.

If you do not have a family doctor, please check the “Find a Doctor” tab on this site to learn which Guelph Family Health Team doctors are currently welcoming new patients.

Need An After-Hours Clinic?

Guelph Family Health Team doctors run several After-Hours Clinics for patients who need to see a doctor but the office is closed.  After-Hours clinics are provided to meet urgent care needs that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment.
