The past year has been a crucible for health policy everywhere in the world. BC has seen the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing deployment of the Primary Care Networks, and a historic election. It has required society to adopt sometimes paradoxical ways of being.
Looking to develop or expand a Community Health Centre? Read on for information about developing a new or expanded CHC in BC that is not already part of a Primary Care Network.
As we move forward, we will need all CHCs in BC to collaborate on a collective vision of just how good
primary care could be in this province. We will need your help carrying our message of advocacy, to make CHCs understood by households across BC as one of the best places to get care.
“I’m really concerned about the impact it’s going to have on women. If we don’t do anything to ensure security, it’s going to be really difficult.”
