What are primary care providers?
Every year, thousands of Canadians receive their Primary Health Care (PHC) services through a primary health care provider. PHC services play an important role in disease prevention and management. Their role is particularly important in the early stages of a disease. Primary care may also be explained as the range of first full medical contact and ongoing care for a patient whose symptoms, health problems or signs have not been diagnosed.
