Thompson Region Division of Family Practice

A GP for Me

A GP for Me aimed to help more people get a family doctor, and better support vulnerable patients with complex health problems. Our division’s plans were created to meet the specific needs of the Thompson Region. We worked with Interior Health, and municipal and community partners to improve local health care. 

Through A GP for Me, the Thompson Division worked to increase the capacity of local primary care by attracting and retaining new doctors and locums to our area, introducing nurses in family practices, improving systems to help people find a family doctor, and strengthening GP connections to specialist and community health services.
