Welcome To The South Island Division of Family Practice
The South Island Division of Family Practice (SIDFP) provides ongoing professional support for Family Physicians, and the best health care possible for residents of the South Island. Together, South Island Division members work 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. This collaborative and innovative approach to health care strengthens family practice and patient care in South Island communities.
We represent Family Physicians from Central Saanich, Sidney and North Saanich on the Saanich Peninsula; and Colwood, Langford, Metchosin, and Sooke on the West Shore. We are a membership-based, not-for-profit society.
Divisions of Family Practice is an initiative of the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC), a collaboration between Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health. 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. All local practicing Family Physicians and Medical Residents are welcome to become Division members.

Community Longitudinal Family Physician (CLFP) Payment
The GPSC is introducing the CLFP Payment: a new annual, ongoing payment for fee-for-service family physicians in BC. The payment recognizes the long-term, relationship-based care family physicians provide to their patients. The first payment (for 2019) will be remitted in January 2020 by MSP Teleplan, for those who meet the eligibility requirements.
