Interested in becoming a patient of the Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic?
Our clinic accepts patients who reside in Oxford County and who do not have a primary care provider (physician or nurse practitioner).
Please note, as a result of COVID-19, the speed in which we are able to take on new patients is affected, as the availability of the full range of services previously available to our patients. Our upmost concern is the safety of our patients and our staff. Physical distancing requirements limit the number of persons we can accommodate onsite at any given time. Therefore, phone appointments and virtual care appointments are now part of our new normal. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Though it is not business as usual, the Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic is still here for you!
In order to address your health care concerns while following safety guidelines in these challenging times, most appointments will be completed by phone or virtual/ video conferencing.
Onsite appointments will be limited to those requiring a face to face assessment only.
Screening for COVID-19:
Persons who are concerned that they may have COVID-19 should complete the online assessment tool at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-self-assessment
Patients may also complete the COVID-19 screening tool by phoning the Ingersoll NPLC and asking to speak to a nurse.
The Ingersoll NPLC is now in a position to test patients who:
- Screen Positive for COVID-19 or
- Are a healthcare worker or caregiver who has been exposed to COVID-19, or
- A person who works in a long-term care facility.
The Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner Led Clinic follows the PPE guidelines outlined by Ontario Health and our perspective local Public Health Organization.

Our front-line healthcare workers need your help. They need personal protective equipment (PPE), so they can continue to care for, and protect our community members. Your supplies could help save lives.
As part of a newly developed, County-wide response strategy to tackle the supply shortage, Oxford County’s healthcare partners are working together to collect and distribute donations of personal protective equipment (PPE) among all healthcare partners working in the Oxford County community.
This call for donations is being coordinated by the Oxford County Community Health Centre (OCCHC) and Oxford County’s Paramedic Services on behalf of hospitals, paramedics, long- term care workers, primary care physicians and other healthcare professionals.
Depending on supplies, donations will be distributed daily and weekly based on priority level and/or most urgent need within the community.
Our team has been working together in a cohesive and organized way since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic as part of Southwestern Public Health’s Emergency Control Group to help tackle necessary response measures within our community. We also want to thank the Ingersoll Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic and Builtbymike IT Services for offering administrative support to this initiative.
