The need for a unified voice for family physicians was recognized by a group of primary care leaders who came together in October 2019. Fifteen physicians established the interim leadership team of Scarborough Family Physician Network in December 2019.
Since inception, we have been representing family physicians on various local, provincial and Ontario Health Team tables to shape health care in Scarborough for our patients.
