What is a Primary Care Network?

Seeking qualified Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Allied Health Professionals for Primary Care Networks (PCN) in British Columbia, Canada

A Primary Care Network is a geographic space where all community-based primary healthcare providers are networked together.

PCN members work together to collaboratively provide comprehensive, patient-centred, team-based and culturally safe healthcare to meet the needs of their individual patients as well as the community.

Primary Care Networks work better for patients – so they can get the care when and where they need it – and for providers – so they are able to care for their patients while being supported by an interdisciplinary team of providers within a community network.

Who is part of the team?

  • Family Practitioners
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Registered Nurses
  • Physiotherapists
  • Clinical Pharmacists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Medical Lab Technologists
  • MRI Technologists
  • Social Workers
  • Registered Dieticians
  • First Nation resources and Traditional Healers

Join A Team-Based Primary Care Network

Be part of a cohesive team where each provider has their own unique role and scope in the provision of patient care, as you work together to make sure that the patient’s needs are met in the most effective way possible.

The Government of British Columbia (BC) announced its vision for an integrated system of primary care across the province. The strategy, which focuses on team-based primary care, connects a range of specialized and standard services within the community.

Bring your clinical expertise and passion for providing quality, compassionate care to a challenging and rewarding role in a Primary Care Network in British Columbia, Canada!
