TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS:

If you are getting an error message when you try to log in or click lost password, it may mean any one of the following:

1) You may not be a member of SGP.

You can check if you are a member by going to the Join page and clicking the red button.  It will take you to the “Sections and Societies” page of the Doctors of BC website where you can log in and see if you have paid your SGP membership, and where you can add SGP to your Doctors of BC membership profile.

2) You may be a member but we might not have your email,

so our site cannot send you a helpful reminder of your log in details. If this is the case, you can do one of the following:

  • Send us an email at sgp.office@doctorsofbc.ca and we can help get you logged in and set up the site for you so that it can send you helpful reminders of your log in details. (During the busy time from Jan-March it might take us a few days to get back to you. Thanks for your patience.)

OR

  • Look up your Doctors of BC Membership ID number by logging in to the Doctors of BC website and going to “My Details” then to “Personal Information” where your Doctors of BC Membership ID number will be listed. If your id has only 4 digits, you will need to add a leading zero for SGP website log in. Note: If you use a number sequence to log in to the Doctors of BC website, those numbers may not be your Doctors of BC Membership ID number.  Or if it is easier,  just send us an email at  sgp.office@doctorsofbc.ca and we’ll get back to you with your log in info.

For any members experiencing challenges accessing the site because we do not have your email, thanks for your perseverance.
Users are finding the site invaluable. You can see their comments in the right margin of the front page in the “what users say” section.

Thanks for your patience and for your support of SGP!
