Our GP Specialist Relations Committee identifies collaborative opportunities between family physicians and specialists to improve referral processes and access to specialist care. We provide guidance and recommendations to current and future Shared Care projects. We also welcome new specialists in the community by sharing local community resources and tools, and informing family physicians on how to access their services.
