The Society of General Practitioners of BC represents the economic and political voice of family doctors within Doctors of BC.
- oversees the GP fee schedule and creates incentives (e.g. for complex care, conferencing and fees for telephone calls)
- represents GPs within Doctors of BC, in negotiations and at the GPSC (If you haven’t heard of the GPSC see our list of GP organizations)
- ensures the GP perspective is heard and promotes Family Medicine to students and the general public
The SGP Board is made up of 34 GPs from across BC. We are the Section of Family Practice within Doctors of BC. For New-to-Practice GPs joining SGP is a chance to get involved in health advocacy at a provincial level.
The SGP has tools all doctors will use, such as our Simplified Fee Guide—easy to use, it gives helpful tips about billing codes at the click of a mouse.
