Unattached Patient Program


Unattached Patient Program

The goals of the UPA program are to provide safe and timely access to medical services, provide a standardized, equitable, and consistent process for providing care and accepting patients into practice at Medical Associates of Port Perry.

The UPA program was developed to enhance the patient experience, increase access to service, and to improve health care outcomes in our community.

The purpose of the UPA program is to provide unattached people with access to care for chronic conditions. All prospective patients are provided with an intake questionnaire, which is triaged to determine medical priority. A Nurse Practitioner may follow UPA chronic conditions until there is an opening with a Family Physician. Episodic care is provided by the Walk-In Clinic.

The Unattached Patient program (UPA) is facilitated by Nurse Practitioners.
