GP SUPPORT TEAM AREAS OF WORK
Our Recruitment and Retention team provides services to support new-to-practice doctors transitioning into various forms of practice and supports retiring doctors to effectively and efficiently transition their practices as they plan for retirement. Support include: customized locum matching, new-to-practice support (i.e. financial job offer comparisons, assistance starting and building a practice), retiring doctor support (i.e. office closure support and retirement advice), and transitioning patients from retiring Family Doctors to doctors growing their panels in the community.
The Practice Optimization Team remains focused on providing business and practice support to assist Family Doctors optimize their clinic’s management and operations. Building on the successes and experiences supporting our Family Doctors and their practices, the Practice Optimization Team is poised to work on the next phase, creating Patient Medical Homes, addressing the mandate set out by the Ministry of Health (and Doctors of BC/GPSC).
The Patient Matching Team continues to work closely with Family Doctors who have the capacity and are willing to accept new patients in a managed pace. By creating a smooth and responsive transition of patient care, the Team has strengthened Division’s relationships with health authorities and community partners while creating an efficient referral approach to match medically complex, high need patients to appropriate primary care providers in a timely manner.
