You can also get off at the Queen's Park station, and walk eastbound on College street. It is about a 5-10 minute walk.Q. Is Taddle Creek Family Health Team accepting new patients?
Taddle Creek Family Health Team's Nurse Practitioners are accepting new patients. Our Nurse Practitioners are located at our Bloor and Christie site.

Taddle Creek FHT is structurally not set up to perform this. Each primary care provider (PCPs) has it's own support staff with knowledge of the PCP's schedule and PCP are physically located in different suites with separate phone systems.Q. What is a Nurse Practitioner and what are their qualifications?
Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioners (PHC NPs) are registered nurses, who are specialists in primary health care, who provide accessible, comprehensive and effective care to clients of all ages. They are experienced nurses with additional nursing education which enables them to provide individuals, families, groups and communities with health services in health promotion, disease and injury prevention, cure, rehabilitation and support. The NP is an advanced practice nurse, functioning within the full scope of nursing practice and as such is not a second level physician nor a doctor's assistant.
