A message from the Board
The City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team is strongly committed to anti-discrimination practices towards Black and Indigenous people, be it individual or institutional, and seeks more inclusion and diversity in every facet of Canadian society. The FHT calls upon federal, provincial, territorial governments and the media to end all anti-Black and anti-Indigenous racism, as well as systemic racism and colonialism in Canada.
We are our community’s new Family Health Team made up of local family doctors working together with our team’s nurse practitioners, family health nurses, dietician, pharmacists, psychologist, social workers, occupational therapist and respiratory therapist.
The members of our team work with your family doctor to provide you with complete health care. This way, patients receive different kinds of expert care and can see a health professional sooner. We also partner with other, local health organizations and offer a variety of health programs designed to meet the specific needs of patients in our community.
Working together, our team strives to ensure all our patients have the best possible care and live healthy lives.
Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, our team is making a difference in the health and well-being of the people of our community.
The City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team is located on the traditional lands of the Michi Saagiig Angisginaabeg subject to Treaty #20. The City of Kawartha Lakes is also in the Dish With One Spoon Territory; a treaty between the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
