Health Connect Registry, After You Register

Last updated: February 2, 2024

By registering for the Health Connect Registry, the team in your community is made aware that you need a family doctor or nurse practitioner.

On this page:

What happens next

The team in your community will review your registration details. You may be contacted for more information.

When a provider in your area becomes available the team will contact you. They will arrange an introduction between you and the provider. If you are both in agreement, you will become “attached” to the family doctor or nurse practitioner as your long-term primary care provider.

If you decline, you will remain on the Registry until another provider becomes available.

Make a change to your registration

Call 8-1-1 to update the information you submitted. You can:

  • Add a family member
  • Update your address or contact information
  • Inform us if you’re no longer looking for a family doctor or nurse practitioner

Find local health services and supports

Finding a primary care provider takes time. There are other healthcare options available in the meantime.

If you don’t see your community listed yet, check back soon. You can register even if your community isn’t listed below.
