Members of our Child, Youth & Family Health and Wellness Team are also able to provide support in navigating referrals to other health and social supports offered by Durham Community Health Centre and partner agencies/providers.

A central fixture of our Child, Youth & Family Health & Wellness Program is our Child, Youth & Family Clinic which consists a fulltime Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, Therapists, and Medical Secretary whose goals are to ensure that timely and consistent medical services are provided by relevant care providers and, when necessary, they can help facilitate prompt referrals to specialized services both within DCHC and to specialists throughout Durham Region.
