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 North Vancouver Clinics.
We added 27 clinics, representing over 130 family doctors. We found 12 clinics (a very high percentage) reported they are accepting new patients on their websites, but websites are often out of date.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.
Find clinics accepting new patients in North Vancouver here.
Health Care on Yates
1139 Yates Street Victoria BC
No walk-ins, 6 doctors
From the government announcement: “Currently, six full-time equivalent (FTE) nurse practitioners are employed by the clinic. When fully staffed, the clinic will include registered nurses, a social worker and a mental health and substance use clinician, for a total of 10 FTE health-care staff”.
Important information: On the contact page of their website it says “We will open the application process on the first Tuesday of every month then close it again when we reach the total number we can process in a month. If you do not see the application on the contact us page, check back one month later. Our intent is to process applications as fast as we can without creating a long wait for new patients”
The Patient Intake Request Form is on the contact page of their website (at least when they are accepting applications).
