For Community Physicians and Nurse Practitioners
Healthy people, healthy communities…thanks to you!
We believe that anyone in the community should have easy access to a team of health professionals to care for them. We work closely with doctors and nurses at our centres and with a range of health professionals throughout the community. In 2018, we expanded our Inter-Professional Care Team to include services that better reflect the range of health issues for Toronto’s North West communities’ growing population. This initiative to give our clients access to a team of health professionals is called People Accessing Care Teams (PACT).
Services we offer through PACT include:
- Chiropody (foot care) – assessment and screening
- Diabetes education and self-management
- Harm reduction – support and referrals
- Lactation consultant – breastfeeding support
- Lung health – spirometry, smoking cessation and exercise
- Sexual healthFor a complete list and description of PACT services, click here.

If you’re a health professional based in Toronto’s North West or North York Central, joining our Inter-Professional Care Team will give you access to a centralized team where you can refer your patients. With the consent of the patient, we can provide timely and confidential updates to referring providers to ensure a continuum of care.
