Welcome to the South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice
The South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice is a membership organization, and a place for primary care providers to connect, collaborate and create positive change. Our Division, which represents primary care providers in the communities of Keremeos, Oliver, Osoyoos, Penticton, Princeton and Summerland, is a leader in the province when it comes to supporting our full-service physician network, team-based care, long term care, maternity care and many more healthcare improvements — making the South Okanagan Similkameen a great place to practice, and a great place to live.
Physicians and nurse practitioners are continuing to provide care. For more information on how to access primary care in our region during the pandemic, please visit our COVID-19 Updates page for Memos and related Media Stories.
(Please note: We have recently shifted from publishing Daily COVID-19 memos to Weekly COVID-19 memos. As we adjust to the new normal, we will continue to assess and update the frequency of our COVID-19 messaging.)
COVID-19 Memo: May 25 - June 1 2020
Family physicians and nurse practitioners urge patients to continue to call their family medicine or walk-in clinic to book an appointment for care, whether COVID-19 related or for other regular or ongoing health issues. Pathways virtual care directory has been launched for the public to find out how their local clinic or walk-in clinic is providing care. Story link
