April 25, 2019 | Government is transforming everyday health care for people living in Richmond by establishing three primary care networks (PCNs), which will bring additional health-care resources and support to the region.
Over the next three years, across the three networks in Richmond, up to 70 new health-care providers will be recruited. This includes 32 new doctors, 14 new nurse practitioners and 24 additional health-care professionals, ranging from registered nurses to allied health-care professionals and clinical pharmacists.
“We know that many people living within Richmond have had challenges getting access to the everyday health care they need for themselves and their families,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “Creating these primary care networks will allow health-care professionals to work together in a team-based environment to help address long-standing gaps in primary care access for people in this community.”
