Due to our current shortage of family practitioners, the Township has been designated as "Underserviced" by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.   Physicians moving to Uxbridge who qualify under this program would be eligible for certain financial incentives.   Uxbridge Physician Recruitment and Retention Committee has been established to coordinate meetings with local physicians and tours of the area for family physicians interested i n relocating to the Township of Uxbridge.  Included in the visit is the local hospital, Medical Centre, local tourist attractions and real estate.

Meanwhile, the Uxbridge Physician Recruitment and
[OperatingRetention Committee is looking at other incentives that the community can offer to physicians willing to relocate and we are certainly open to discussing any other considerations that may be part of your deliberations.[Emergency

The Doctors in our community are most collegial and supportive, and are looking for additional doctors to share the patient care workload.  Family practice office facilities are available in the Toronto Street Medical Centre and the Family Health Clinic, which can currently accommodate up to four additional doctors.


We hope that this may have piqued your interest and would enjoy the opportunity to arrange an in depth tour of our community and facilities, and personally discuss the benefits of relocating.
