The Downtown Eastside (DTES) is one of Vancouver's oldest neighbourhoods, and the historic heart of the city. The DTES has many assets, especially for its low-income residents, who appreciate feeling accepted and at home, and benefit from living near health and social services. Many volunteers contribute countless hours to help improve the community and work for social justice. In recent years, the Downtown Eastside has struggled with many complex challenges including drug use, crime, homelessness, housing issues, unemployment, and loss of businesses in the community.
The government of BC recently announced its vision for an integrated system of primary care across the province with Primary Care Networks (PCNs) as the backbone to a team-based approach. The objective of the first phase of implementation, beginning in 2018, is to increase the number of British Columbians who have access to quality primary care and are attached to a primary care provider. In support of this, funding has been allocated for up to 200 GPs and 200 NPs to work in interdisciplinary teams as part of Primary Care Networks. This clinic is open to hosting Family Doctor’s that are interested in the Fee-for-Service or the new PCN APP salary positions.
