We’re Your Team


Brockton and Area Family Health Team Vision Statement

Improved collaboration between health care providers in the areas of detection, intervention, and prevention and the establishment of an evidence based, effective and efficient model of primary health care.



What is the Brockton and Area Family Health Team?


The Brockton and Area Family Health Team (BAFHT) is one of the original Family Health Teams established by the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care in the Province of Ontario. We provide services to the rural communities of Chesley, Durham, Mildmay, Paisley, Walkerton and surrounding areas.


The Family Health Team (FHT) concept is a new approach to provincial healthcare and is designed to reduce wait times, and to improve community access to healthcare services at the local level. Family Health Teams are fully funded by the Ministry and use “state of the art” information technology to provide secure access to health records and lab results.


The Brockton and Area Family Health Team offers a “holistic” approach to healthcare. This means that the “whole” person is treated, and that, in addition to physical symptoms, other factors affecting an individual’s health are also considered.

This is a team approach that brings together family physicians with other healthcare providers in order to keep you and your family healthy, and not just offer treatment when you are sick.


Our team approach will provide up-to-date information on the prevention of illness and disease, help you to understand risk factors, and offer strategies to help manage chronic illnesses.


Forming partnerships with local health and community service providers, the BAFHT works collaboratively in meeting the healthcare needs of the local population.
