B.C’s new system of primary care is arriving in Sooke

April 26, 2019
Following the government of British Columbia’s announcement of its plans for a new system of primary health care, significant strides have been made. Four primary care networks (PCNs) have been rolled out in Fraser northwest communities, and three PCNs and an Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC) will be opened in Burnaby in May 2019. A PCN and a UPCC will be opened in Prince George in June 2019, a PCN has been announced for the South Okanagan Similkameen region, and three PCNs have been announced for Richmond.

The expansion of team-based care in the West Coast Family Medical Clinic will bring better, faster healthcare to the people in Sooke. This primary care strategy will also provide new jobs for healthcare providers in the area. Two general practitioners, one nurse practitioner and two registered nurses will be recruited to join the existing team at the clinic. This will improve the services of the clinic, including primary care, newborn and post-partum care, non-emergency urgent care and medical services to the Elders’ Wellness Clinic at the T’Souke Nation.

Health Match BC will continue to support the primary care network initiative through targeted digital advertising, social media content circulation and direct candidate engagement.
