A GP for Me
Many communities have a significant number of
residents who do not have a family physician of their own; they are not
‘attached’ to a local primary care physician.The GPSC’s Attachment initiative, also known as “A GP for Me”, aims to
ensure that access to and benefits of primary care are available to all British
Columbians, including those who may be hard to serve in traditional practice
settings.The initiative also addresses
the development of strategies to improve support and reward family physicians
who are committed to delivering long-term care for their patients.
