Patient Focused Initiatives
GP link is one of the North Shore division's A GP for Me strategies. The program has been launched as a pilot mechanism for connecting unattached patients with a family physician.
The HealthConnection Clinic provides health care services to vulnerable people who have medical, mental health, and/or socio-economic challenges, and no regular access to a family physician.
The aim of the GP/Specialists Relations initiative is to improve the patient and physician experience, and to improve relations and communications with our specialist colleagues.
The Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative aims to improve access to integrated mental health and substance use (MHSU) services and supports.
Ensure each resident in every North Shore residential care facility has a dedicated GP as most responsible physician based on five best practice requirements, and develop a program that attracts more physicians to residential care.
