Provide primary care services to individuals who do not have a regular family doctor (general practitioner or GP) or nurse practitioner (NP), and face complex medical, mental health, addiction, and/or socioeconomic needs (e.g., housing, income, access to food).
Clients can be directed to the HealthConnection Clinic by health care providers or community service providers, or drop in as self-referrals. No scheduled appointment or formal referral is necessary to be seen at the Clinic, but scheduled appointments are available.
The Clinic team includes a family physician, a nurse practitioner, a chronic disease nurse coordinator and a medical office assistant. In addition, the clinic is collaborating with community agencies to support clients who require assistance with non-medical issues such as housing, income and access to food.
This Clinic is made possible through a partnership between the North Shore Division of Family Practice and Vancouver Coastal Health.
