Sunshine Coast Division of Family Practice

The Sunshine Coast Division of Family Practice represents physicians who support the communities along the lower Sunshine Coast, including Earl's Cove, Langdale, Madeira Park, Pender Harbour, Sechelt, Robert's Creek, and Gibsons.

Together, the members work to improve local primary care, increase local physicians' influence on health care delivery and policy, and provide professional support for physicians. Membership is open to all physicians practising or recently retired on the Lower Sunshine Coast, including specialists and locums.

The Division gives local physicians an opportunity to work collaboratively with Vancouver Coastal Health, the General Practice Service Committee (GPSC), and the Ministry of Health to identify health care needs within the Sunshine Coast community and to develop workable solutions to meet those needs.
