Oceanside Division of Family Practice

The Oceanside Division of Family Practice represents family physicians in a collection of 12 friendly and small communities, stretching from the Parksville/Qualicum Beach areas along the sheltered Strait of Georgia on Vancouver Island's eastern shore, to Nanoose Bay in the south and Deep Bay in the North - we even encompass inland areas including Cathedral Grove and Horne Lake, as well as the historic town of Coombs.  Parksville-Qualicum Beach is thoroughly equipped with modern emergency service infrastructures, including our fabulous new Urgent Care facility, the Oceanside Health Centre.  With on average 2,047 hours of brilliant sunshine every year, it's one of the best places in Canada to live, work and play!

The Oceanside Division of Family Practice, formed in 2010, is a local non-profit society of community-based primary care physicians.  The Division gives local physicians an opportunity to work collaboratively with Island Health, the GPSC, and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs in the local community and develop solutions to meet those needs. 

Our members work together to:
  • Increase family practitioner influence on health care delivery in our region.
  • Enhance professional satisfaction to general practitioners.
  • Improve patient care in our area.
