Backgrounders

West Coast Family Medical Clinic background

Project partners include local physicians, Island Health, the South Island Division of Family Practice, community organizations, such as the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative and Sooke Family Resource Society, and residents who attended numerous public engagement events. 

  • The West Coast Family Medical Clinic is located at 1300 - 6660 Sooke Rd.
  • The expansion of the West Coast Family Medical Clinic and the opening of the Westshore Urgent Primary Care Centre in fall 2018 reflect the Province’s primary care strategy, which is focused on providing all British Columbians with improved access to team-based health care.
  • Primary care is the day-to-day health care given by a health-care provider. Urgent primary care is the care that people need within 12 to 48 hours, for conditions, such as sprains, urinary problems and minor cuts or burns.
  • Throughout the province, 70% of communities will form primary care networks over the next three years.
  • These networks will bring together and co-ordinate local health-care providers, services and programs, making it easier for people to access regular care providers, receive follow-up care and connect to other services they may need.
