The Future of Primary Care: Have your say on actions and solutions

June 20, 2022

Doctors of BC is seeking physician input on actions and solutions to address the primary care challenges that impact all of us – family doctors, specialists, and all our patients. 

This is part of our commitment to listen, understand your needs, and ensure your voices are heard in the development of short, medium, and long-term solutions. Your feedback will form the foundation for tangible, concrete actions that we will bring forward in our meetings with government.

Now open: Have Your Say online engagement platform

Physicians are now invited to provide written input and partake in open dialogue with each other through our Have your Say online community engagement platform. 

Click here to access the platform and share your input. 

Discussion topics and background information are available on the platform, which will be open from June 20 - July 15. If you haven’t participated in our online engagement platform before, a one-time registration will only take a few minutes.

The two-hour Zoom sessions are organized by health authority, with a separate session scheduled for R2 residents and R2 graduates. If you cannot attend sessions scheduled for your region, or the resident's group, feel free to join any other session on a date that works for you. We will send participants the questions and discussion topics in advance of these sessions.
