South Peace


Welcome to the South Peace Division of Family Practice

The South Peace Division of Family Practice supports the communities of Chetwynd, Tumbler Ridge and Dawson Creek and is a platform for innovation in health care. Divisions of Family Practice are part of a province-wide initiative designed to strengthen health care in BC. We operate as a not for profit society & our membership encompasses all family physicians & nurse practitioners across the region. Together, the members work to improve patient access to local primary care, increase local physicians' influence on health care delivery and policy, and provide professional support for providers. The Division gives local providers an opportunity to work collaboratively with Northern Health Authority, the Family Practice Services Committee (FPSC), First Nations Health Authority and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs in the local community and develop solutions to meet those needs.
