The Port Alberni Division is an independent entity, whose goals are:
The Division provides formal family practice influence and leadership at community, regional and provincial levels. They advocate for and develop programs specifically tailored to the health care needs of the area, and administer funding provided for each program.
It is a group of Port Alberni family physicians, supported by the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC).
We work with the Ministry of Health, GPSC and the Health Authority, and access funding to develop community-specific programs that enhance patient care and improve our professional satisfaction.
As a member, you can help strengthen local primary health care with your experience and insights. Participation is not mandatory, but it helps all Family Physicians improve conditions, programs and health (both ours and our patients).
As a member, you are encouraged to participate as your interest and time allows. You are not obligated to participate in planning processes or clinical service programs.
You will be informed about Division activities, community and regional programs, and support services which may interest you or your patients. You will be invited to CME and social events, and to the annual general meeting.
