Welcome to the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice

Divisions of Family Practice are an innovation in health care in BC. The Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice represents family physicians in Castlegar, Christina Lake, Fruitvale, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo, Midway, Nakusp, Nelson, New Denver, Rock Creek, Rossland, Salmo, and Trail, BC.

Together, members work to improve patient access to local primary care, increase local physicians’ influence on health care delivery and policy, and provide professional support for physicians.


Your Doc Is In:

Local practitioners want patients to know that clinics open and are providing phone, video and in-person appointments when necessary, with all necessary precautions in place based on the Provincial Health Officer’s guidelines.

Call your doctor first. They know you best.

A list of clinics in Kootenay Boundary, including walk-in clinic options for patients who don’t currently have a practitioner, can be found here.
