Find a Family Physician
Register for a family physician or nurse practitioner.
If you, your family, or someone in your care needs a primary care provider (family physician 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 physician 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.
