White Rock-South Surrey Division of Family Practice
Your family doctor is your partner in health. Through the White Rock-South Surrey Division of Family Practice, local family doctors come together to improve the delivery of health care in our community.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, WRSS family physicians are available to provide care to patients using telephone or video. They are also available for in-clinic care as needed.
To book your appointment, call your family physician’s office. If an in-person visit is needed, your family physician will let you know, and their staff will follow up to make arrangements. Your family physician will also continue to refer you to specialists as needed.
“Although the virus is top of mind right now, people still need ongoing care and advice for acute or chronic conditions requiring treatment or medication. There is a misconception that patients shouldn’t contact their doctors for routine appointments or non-COVID-19 related illness right now—absolutely they should,” said Dr Kathleen Ross, President of Doctors of BC. She is urging patients to call their family physician first.
Some of our local walk-in clinics are also open. Check www.medimap.ca for availability and any special instructions. Medimap will also show which local clinics are accepting new patients.
