Recruit and Retain Family Doctors

Sponsorship Package

Our mission is to improve access to Family Doctors in in the British Columbia communities of Colwood, Esquimalt, Highlands, Langford, Metchosin, and View Royal.

We have successfully hired 9 doctors from out of country who will be joining our clinics in the fall.

Access to community-based Primary Care is a vital part of a healthy and sustainable community. Your financial support of the Westshore Primary Care Society can help us recruit and retain Family Doctors in our community.

The Westshore Primary Care Society is currently raising funds to help open new clinics and transition existing clinics to a not-for-profit service model. The not-for-profit service model supports the administrative burden of Family Practices so healthcare workers can provide their undivided attention to their clinics.

Three clinics are confirmed at this time, with a fourth expected to begin the process shortly. These are private West Shore clinics looking at closing their doors because of retirements or other life changes of the physicians/owners of the practices, leaving more people in our community at risk of losing their Family Doctor unless a solution is found. 

By starting with the transition of clinics which would otherwise be closing, we are stepping up to help stabilize Primary Care services for the people of the West Shore and simultaneously working to recruit fresh personnel to build further capacity and connect more community members with a Primary Care team.

Your donation will go towards:

Recruitment Costs of New Physicians or Nurse Practitioners attached patients

Retention strategies to support physicians or nurse practitioners already working

Administrative costs to resource our non-for-profit

Quality initiatives to reduce the administrative Burden of our Doctors so they can spend more time with their patients
