Squamish Residents Seeking a Family Practitioner - Register Now:
Many small or rural communities in BC struggle to recruit and retain primary care providers. In Squamish, we know that more practitioners will be required to support our fast-growing population. Work is underway to bring new practitioners into the community, but if you or a member of your family are currently without a physician, please take a moment and register that status here: https://bc-whistler1-sis.weltelhealth.net/enroll?clinicId=3
Registering helps us understand the volume of local need, which in turn helps us advocate for increased primary care resources and supports. And by participating, you'll be helping to directly inform the primary care planning efforts underway in your home community. Registering with your cel phone number provides us with an effective way of notifying you as new practitioners do come available.
