A GP for Me is a province-wide initiative funded jointly by the Government of BC and Doctors of BC (formerly the BC Medical Association):

  • Enable patients who want a family doctor to find one.
  • Increase the capacity of the primary health care system.
  • Confirm and strengthen the continuous doctor-patient relationship, including better support for the needs of vulnerable patients.

Over time, the supports provided by A GP for Me will:

  • make it easier for doctors to provide and coordinate care for their patients efficiently – so they will be able to accept more patients into their practices; and
  • enable physicians to develop plans at a community level to improve local primary care capacity, including a mechanism for finding doctors locally for patients who are looking for one.
