           Bancroft Primary Care Waiting List           


What to do if you need medical attention while on the waiting list for a Family Physician:

With the recent retirement of several doctors in the area, there is a large influx of people requesting a family physician. Most of the doctors at the BFHT have full practices but are adding patients whenever possible. The NHFHT is currently at capacity.  Both FHT’s currently have over 750 patients on a waiting list, therefore, there are many patients waiting to be assigned to a Practitioner.  If you are accepted by a Practitioner, you will be notified by mail.

We encourage you to apply to the Bancroft Primary Care Waiting List.  Please apply by registering at either the BFHT or NHFHT (online applications are available*).  It is not necessary to apply at both FHT’s, the waiting list is shared and either office will contact you when Practitioners are accepting patients.  If you have applied in the past to either FHT, you do not need to reapply.

In the meantime, the following options are available for your Medical Care:

  • The ER – medical care is always available 24/7 at the Emergency Department of the Hospital.
    • In an attempt to reduce wait times, an additional doctor will be available daily from 1pm – 5pm to see patients triaged in ER. Must present valid Health card.
  • Good Doctors Bancroft – there is a walk-in clinic available at IDA Pharmacy, 90 Hastings Street in Bancroft, Monday – Friday 9am to 5pm. Phone: (613)-701-1245 for more info.
