Urgent and primary care centre coming to Esquimalt

Leah Hollins, board chair, Island Health –

“The urgent and primary care centre planned for Esquimalt will have a positive impact on all those living in the community and surrounding area who are looking for local, same-day access to health-care services. It will mean a team of health professionals working together at one location to provide same-day care and, for those who do not have a care provider, facilitate connections to primary care to better support their immediate and long-term care needs.”

Dr. Kathleen Ross, president, Doctors of BC –

“We look forward to the integration of the urgent and primary care centre in hopes it will strengthen primary care and ensure people in the community have access to the health-care services they need, while supporting a long-term relationship between patients and their family doctors.”

Michael Sandler, executive director, Association of Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC –

“The Association of Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC is pleased that the knowledge, skills and expertise of the entire health-care team will improve access to health care for British Columbians through urgent and primary care centres. We believe that this approach will be pivotal in ensuring B.C. families can access health-care services, and we are excited to see the launch of another urgent and primary care centre in B.C.”  

Dr. Vanessa Young, South Island Division of Family Practice –

“The South Island Division of Family Practice is pleased that one of the next urgent and primary care centres will open in Esquimalt. We hope to see a majority of the new resources and funding directed to longitudinal primary care: a 20-year-long crisis in our south island communities. As a key resource in advancing our primary care future within South Island Division communities, we look forward to working closely with our health authority, Ministry of Health, First Nations and patient partners through a meaningful stakeholder engagement process to ensure the Esquimalt UPCC delivers on its promise of improved local health-care services in line with community needs.”
