Welcome to the South Island Division

The South Island Division of Family Practice comprises members from the Saanich Peninsula communities of Central Saanich, Sidney and North Saanich, and the West Shore communities of Colwood, Langford, Metchosin, and Sooke.

The goal of the SIDFP is to provide the best health care possible for residents of the South Island region, as well as ongoing professional support for family physicians.

Together, South Island Division members are working to improve patient access to local primary care, increase local physicians' influence on health care delivery and policy, and create a community for family physicians.

The purpose of the Division is to provide a unique, collaborative, and innovative approach to patient care through a tripartite relationship between the Division, the Ministry, and Island Health.
