Primary Care Clinics - Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Family Doctor Finder work?

People living in Manitoba, who need a primary care provider, are able to register with the Family Doctor Finder online OR by calling 204-786-7111 (in Winnipeg) OR toll-free 1-866-690-8260. 

A Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living representative uses a database to record basic demographic and contact information, as well as the person’s preferences for provider type and location.

Primary Care Connectors receive this information and work with primary care providers who are accepting patients to connect program registrants to a provider in their preferred geographic area.

How does the Family Doctor Finder benefit patients?

The upgraded program provides an easy way for people without a regular primary care provider to register and be connected with a provider who meets their needs.

How will Primary Care Connectors help me?

Primary Care Connectors are a central point of contact to help connect you to regional and provincial resources. They provide a bridge to new patients without inundating clinics with requests. 

They can maintain regular contact with you and be available to help problem-solve or discuss opportunities to support your practice. 

Primary Care Connectors also connect regularly with provincial and regional programs and services such as emergency departments to identify interested individuals who need a regular primary care provider.

Where can I get more information?

For more information or to find out how to contact your regional Primary Care Connector, please call 204-786-7111 (in Winnipeg) OR toll-free 1-866-690-8260.
