Central Okanagan Division of Family Practice

Find a Family Doctor

How you sign up for a family doctor in the Central Okanagan has changed

Now, there's a new registration list for people who need a family doctor or nurse practitioner. You can join this list online or by calling 8-1-1. You can even sign up for your family members or someone you care for. 

If you were already on our old waitlist, we will call or email you to ask if you want to be on the new list. If you say yes, your name will be on the new list in the same order as before, and we'll get in touch with you to get more information. You don't have to sign up again. 

In early December we sent the following email to people who were already on the waitlist:

If you are not able to find this email in your inbox, search your spam/junk mail; the email is titled "Patient Notification | Find a Family Doctor program transitioning to HealthConnect Registry"

We want to assure you that the email is genuine, and it follows the rules of the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). All the details from the survey and your responses will be kept on secure Canadian servers. 


We are kindly asking patients not to call clinics at this time. 

The clinics are overwhelmed by calls, and there is no space to accept new patients currently. Instead, Join the BC Health Connect Registry, and you will be added to a waitlist for a family doctor or nurse practitioner when one becomes available.
