The City of Belleville is pleased to announce the signing of Dr. Mohammed Aamir Saiyed into the Belleville Doctor Recruitment Program. Dr. Saiyed will participate in the program while he finishes his residency and will be ready to start his practice in the fall of 2025.   

“The City has been working with Dr. Saiyed for approximately one year and we are so pleased he is ready to commit to working and living in Belleville once he completes his residency,” said Mayor Neil Ellis. “We have enjoyed getting to know Dr. Saiyed. We know he will love living here and that our community will make him feel welcome and appreciated.”

“I am excited with the opportunity to practice Family Medicine/Sports Medicine in Belleville and I look forward to giving back to a community in dire need of family doctors,” said Dr. Mohammed Aamir Saiyed.

Although healthcare and physician recruitment are not a municipal responsibility, the City of Belleville has recognized the shortcomings of the Provincial Health Care system and has implemented one of the most successful recruitment programs in the province, recruiting nearly 50 physicians and five nurse practitioners. The program is funded by the dividends the City receives as a shareholder of Elexicon Energy and to date, over $6 million has been committed to attracting primary healthcare providers.

For residents in need of a family physician or a nurse practitioner, it is important to register with Health Care Connect (HCC). HCC is a resource used by physicians and government agencies to place patients with physicians and can be relied upon by doctors and nurse practitioners when developing or expanding their roster of patients. Registering with HCC is the key to finding primary health care in Ontario. You can register with HCC by calling 1-800-445-1822 (TTY 1-800-387-5559) or by visiting the HCC website.
