Priority Notification Service for the South Island Open

Due to overwhelming demand we had to close the South Island Priority Notification Service to new subscribers in June of this year.

We are pleased to announce that due to subscribers finding family doctors and leaving the service we now have space to accept more people.

If you are looking for a family doctor in the South Island Region (which is everything south of the Malahat on Vancouver Island) you can find out more here.

West Vancouver Clinics Added to Findadoctorbc.ca

After a year of working out the logistics and strategies for helping people find family doctors and nurse practitioners on Vancouver Island, we have started our expansion into the rest of BC by adding West Vancouver Clinics.

We added 13 clinics, representing about 40 family doctors. We found 5 clinics (a very high percentage) reported they at least might be accepting new patients on their websites, but websites are often out of date. If people call clinics and find their accepting status is different than reported, please take a moment to fill of the “Call Report Form” provided on the contact page to let us know so we can update the information.
