Welcome to the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice

Divisions of Family Practice are an innovation in health care in BC. The Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice represents family physicians in Castlegar, Christina Lake, Fruitvale, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo, Midway, Nakusp, Nelson, New Denver, Rock Creek, Rossland, Salmo, and Trail, BC.

Together, 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 physicians.

 

Your Doc Is In: Kootenay Boundary Clinics Are Open & Providing Safe Care:

Local practitioners want patients to know that clinics open and are providing phone, video and in-person appointments when necessary, with all necessary precautions in place based on the Provincial Health Officer’s guidelines.

Call your doctor first. They know you best.

A list of clinics in Kootenay Boundary, including walk-in clinic options for patients who don’t currently have a practitioner, can be found here.

 

Let's Continue to Flatten the Curve Together Kootenay Boundary:

The dedication in our region, together with the rest of BC, has helped flatten our COVID-19 curve. We have changed the way we live, work, and socialize to keep each other safe. Our hard work is paying off.

As we restart our lives across this amazing region, we must  proceed with caution. The things we need to do to protect and keep each other safe remain the same.
