From the media release (pdf – 319KB) dated June 18, 2019, from the Peterborough Family Health Team:
“Cottagers and visitors of Peterborough County now have access to walk-in care three times per week. The North Kawartha Health Centre in Apsley and the PFHT Clinic in Lakefield are extending their hours and offering a walk-in service to cottagers of the area.
The hours are as follows:
North Kawartha Health Centre – 183 Burleigh Street in Apsley Walk-in service commences June 15.
- Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (last patient is accepted at 2:00 p.m.)
PFHT Clinic – 150 Strickland Street, Suite 3, Lakefield Walk-in service commences July 4.
- Sundays from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m. (last patient is accepted at 4:00 p.m.)
The PFHT Clinic can assist with most patient needs, however, those requiring sutures (stitches) or removal of fishhooks will be directed elsewhere for care, such as the local emergency department. Cottagers and visitors may also access service at the PFHT Clinic during the week by appointment only. Week day hours are as follows:
- Monday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
- Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
“We continue working to meet the needs of our residents and during the summer these residents expand to include cottagers and visitors,” says Lori Richey, executive director of Peterborough Family Health Team. “When the PFHT Clinic was opened in September 2018 our intention was always to increase the hours during the busy summer months when cottagers are at the many surrounding lakes, recognizing we must balance our limited service to both permanent residents and cottagers of the area.”

From the Peterborough County website:
Peterborough County/City Paramedics are being challenged by a continually increasing number of service requests. Approximately 20% of people who call 911 do so for a non-urgent illness or injury which could be better managed by other health care providers. When paramedics are responding to these non-urgent conditions, it can delay the response to urgent, life-threatening situations.
“It is important to remember that 911 is for emergencies and although we will answer every 911 call and provide medical assistance, phoning for an ambulance is not always the right call to make to get the right care.” ~ Chief Randy Mellow
We encourage our residents to consider the other treatment options available and to make the call that best meets their needs.
