Finding a Doctor
The Family Doctor Finder connects individuals and families in Manitoba to a family
doctor or nurse practitioner. Family Doctor Finder is designed to connect you and
your family with a home clinic, providing a home base for all your health care
needs. If you live in Manitoba and need a regular primary care provider, you can
register with the program online or by calling the program directly. When you
register, provincial registration staff will ask you to provide information about
yourself and basic preferences regarding care.
Every health region has staff who focus on connecting people to a home clinic.
Outside Winnipeg, these staff are known as primary care connectors. Once
registered with the program, regional staff will contact you, work with you to find a
home clinic, and be available to discuss your needs. These services are available in
both English and French.
