Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners working within Primary Care Networks will be remunerated through ‘Service Contracts’, which will be administered by the regional health authority; however, health care professionals engaged through these contracts will be independent contractors. Recruitment for this role is initially targeted to family physicians and nurse practitioners who do not currently have a patient panel in the province. A new Service Contract will also be developed and offered to established primary care providers with existing patient panels who wish to participate in a team-based primary care practice.
The Service Contract will require you to work 1680 hours (pro-rated for part-time positions) and approximately 220 days per year, providing you with flexibility and genuine work/life balance.
For more information on compensation, please contact Health Match BC at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine your eligibility to apply for a PCN contract.
Arrangements between the family physicians or nurse practitioners and the clinics regarding overhead costs will be determined privately among both parties.
