You need a referral from a physician or nurse practitioner for this Clinic. We will contact you with an appointment time.
In keeping with the BC provincial health officer's advice to meet the requirements of social distancing, all our in person appointments and elective groups will be offered via telephone or postponed.
For new patients that will be contacted during this time, you may receive a phone call from our booking team to schedule a telephone self-management assessment with a clinician followed by a telephone medical consult with a physician. Please complete lab work (if requested) prior to your telephone physician assessment.
The physician will determine your eligibility for the CCDP. If you are accepted into the program, our booking team will contact you by phone to schedule your case-coordination appointments and provide a follow up email with medical visit handouts and a link to our introduction videos. The case-coordination phone calls with our team will assist you in selecting the elective groups you would like to take at CCDP.
To become a patient of the program, you must have a completed referral form from your primary health care professional (such as a family doctor, nurse practitioner, naturopathic doctor) or specialist who will support your daily chronic disease management and follow your ongoing health.
We will work directly with your primary health care professional to
ensure that they receive information to provide you with the best available
standards of care. If you do not have a regular health care professional, we can
provide a list of General Practitioners and Nurse Practitioners who are
accepting new patients.
We understand that living with complex and chronic diseases means that sometimes appointments need to be changed or cancelled.
During this time, there will be no consequences if you cancel your appointment within 2 business days.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as you are able if you need to make any changes.
