Find a Family Doctor


Register for a family doctor or nurse practitioner.

If you, your family, or someone in your care needs a primary care provider (family doctor or nurse practitioner), you can register with the Health Connect Registry.

The registry is available to all patients in Richmond who do not currently have a family doctor or nurse practitioner.

You will be contacted when one becomes available.

Note: The Richmond Attachment Waitlist (RAW) is now part of the Health Connect Registry. If you already signed up for the waitlist in Richmond, you do not need to register again.

In our community, there is an extremely limited capacity, so we appreciate your patience and understanding.
