We collaborate because....
It means everyone’s voice is heard and a stronger, more efficient system created.
Doctors care deeply about their patients, and patients trust their doctors..
Patients and families need a health care system that works for them.
Our population is getting older and health care needs are changing.
A commitment was made in 2001 between Doctors of BC and the BC government that still holds true today. The commitment - work collaboratively to improve patient care and provide the best health care services to the people of BC. That’s the work of the Joint Collaborative Committees – each committee is dedicated to specific areas of health care – primary care (GPSC), specialist care (SSC), primary care/specialist care (Shared Care) and rural care (JSC). Each committee represents doctors, government and health authorities working together to co-design and share the current state and future direction of BC’s health care systems. All the committees are funded by Doctors of BC through the Physician Master Agreement.
