Ministry of Health: Improving access to primary care on South Vancouver Island

Government is investing in short-term measures to support primary care on south Vancouver Island, including supports for physicians, new nursing and allied health resources and stabilization for five walk-in clinics to better support patients. 

These measures are based on significant local engagement over the last several months through the South Island Primary Care Network (PCN) Walk-in Clinic Task Force, which included participation of the Ministry of Health, Island Health and the South Island Division of Family Practice, as well as local walk-in clinics and full-service primary care practices.
