GPSC has released its final Visioning Engagement Report, outlining what it heard from the thousands of GPs who participated in the visioning process last year. GPSC has agreed to work towards incenting and supporting family doctors to transition to a BC version of the CFPC Patient Medical Home model. This will be the focus of its work for the upcoming year.
Meanwhile, in a parallel universe, the Ministry of Health has directed Health Authorities to work with local Divisions of Family Practice to deliver plans by June 1 on how to implement Primary Care Homes across BC in the next 3 years. SGP believes that Patient Medical Homes live within Primary Care Home neighbourhoods and wants everyone to get outside their four walls and work together to realise the vision together: family docs; GPSC; Health Authorities; MOH.
How can we create a Patient Centred healthcare system if we don’t travel together down the same road?
