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.
