Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario

Guelph Family Health Team

About this BPSO:

Since 2006, the Guelph Family Health Team has taken a team-based approach to patient care and wellbeing. The traditional experience of going to the doctor when you are sick is evolving to a complete team of health care professionals that offers patients support for every need, in every stage of life.

In addition to your relationship with your family doctor, patients benefit from the expertise of Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses, Clinical Pharmacists, Registered Dietitians, Mental Health Counsellors and health promotion specialists. Referrals to these in-house care team specialists are faster than with the traditional model, reducing wait times, and improving access for everyone.

The Guelph Family Health Team is setting a new standard in Ontario, providing leadership for other Family Health Teams and collaborating with community partners to pioneer new, award-winning programs to deliver the best quality of integrated care as quickly and efficiently as possible.
