The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice, incorporated on November 22, 2011, represents family physicians, locums, hospitalists, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners and family medicine residents in Nanaimo and on Gabriola Island.
There is no obligation or cost to join. Division funding from the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) is established on a per-member basis. This funding provides support to physicians for their time on working groups and provides infrastructure funds for member-identified priorities and Division events, e.g., continuing medical education events.
There are 14 Family Physicians in Nanaimo who provide comprehensive maternity care. If you have a Family Doctor, they can refer you to the group, or if you don’t have a Family Doctor, you can self refer and the doctor will take you and your baby on as patients permanently.
