New nurse practitioner primary care clinic coming to Surrey

August 7, 2020 at 10:20 am  BC, News, Politics

Jinny Sims, MLA for Surrey-Panorama –

“The new nurse practitioner primary care clinic in Surrey is an exciting step forward for the community. Thanks to this new approach, even more people will get access to team-based care and be attached to a primary care provider, which is much needed in the region. It will make a real difference in the lives of residents.”

Harry Bains, MLA for Surrey-Newton –

“Surrey is one of the fastest-growing communities in B.C., and the new nurse practitioner primary care clinic will help take demand off Surrey Memorial Hospital’s emergency department and connect more people to a consistent primary care provider.”

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

“Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC are pleased to have helped lead the process of conceptualizing and opening these NP Primary Care Clinics with strong community support. It has been with the diligence and advocacy of the NP Council of NNPBC and, in particular, our director of NP provincial initiatives Danielle Daigle and project manager Patricia Telford, whose detailed knowledge of the inner workings of NP practice within the larger health-care delivery context has been key to getting where we are today. We applaud this approach to team-based care that taps into the expertise of nurse practitioners as primary care providers as well as all health-care staff. This clinic is key to ensuring B.C. families can access timely health-care services when they need them, and we are thrilled about the opening of the first NP-Primary Care Clinic in Surrey.” 

Dr. Victoria Lee, president and CEO, Fraser Health –

“We are proud of working with the Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC and the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice to co-ordinate health services to support patients and their families. This clinic will help people further manage their existing health conditions, avoid unnecessary hospital visits and remain healthy and independent as long as possible.”

Dr. Elaine Jackson, co-chair, board of directors, Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice –

“The Surrey-North Delta Division is supportive of this effort to improve access to quality health care and values the opportunity to partner with Fraser Health and Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC to launch a new nurse practitioner primary care clinic in Surrey. This clinic will serve patients who have difficulties accessing primary care, it will strengthen the existing network of primary care services in the community and will create an alternative employment opportunity for health-care teams wanting to provide care in Surrey.”
