Wellesley Site Accepting New Primary Health Care Clients

The health centre is now accepting new primary health care clients at our Wellesley site only from people who wish to register with a nurse practitioner/physician team, and who do not currently have primary health care. Assignment to a physician/nurse practitioner team will be made on the basis of available “openings” in our teams’ caseloads.

Applicants must be a permanent resident of our Wellesley Site catchment area – that is:

How to apply at the Wellesley Site:

If you have an OHIP number, you must first sign up with the local Health Care Connect program. “Care Connectors” staff at Health Care Connect will ask you for some information that will establish the urgency of your need for primary health care. Once your eligibility is confirmed, the Care Connector will send your contact information to the health centre. The health centre will call you to obtain some additional information about you/your family and your health care needs, and book you for an upcoming new client orientation session. If the records at Health Care Connect indicate that you are currently registered with another primary care provider, you will first need to de-roster with that provider before signing up with Health Care Connect. The Care Connector will explain that process to you, if it is required. You can call Health Care Connect at 1-800-445-1822, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you do not have OHIP, you will need to pick up an application form at our Wellesley site, at 1180 Queens Bush Road, in the village of Wellesley. Once you complete and return that form to the health centre, our staff will call you to obtain some additional information about you/your family and your health care needs, and book you for an upcoming new client orientation session.
