PFSP now recruiting family physicians willing to take colleagues as patients

Physicians for Physicians (P4P)

What is the PFSP’s Physicians for Physicians (P4P) service?

Established by PFSP, P4P is a confidential network of family physicians who are willing to take colleagues, if possible, as patients in their practices. 

The PFSP will help to connect physicians who call the 1-877-767-4637 Assistance Line to a family physician who has agreed to participate in the P4P program.

More than ever, physicians need the care and support of a family doctor, but many are without primary care for themselves or their family members. All physicians can benefit from having a personal family physician to maintain optimal health and thus enable them to better care for their patients. 

Sign up now!

The P4P service is used by physicians of all career stages, and its success relies on family physicians signing up to be providers in this network.
