Dear members and prospective members:
It is a tumultuous time in medicine as COVID continues, the threat of a ‘twindemic’ with flu season looms, and we grapple with the on-going system-wide healthcare crisis while navigating physician negotiations with government (both inside and outside the PMA). Consultant Specialists of BC knows the hard work Specialists continue to provide. We are vigorously advocating for you and we need you to make your voices heard to support that advocacy. Please read on to hear what we’ve been working on and how you can help:
While it was gratifying to see some of these Specialty Care issues formally acknowledged in the September 1 Doctors of BC President’s letter, at this stage we remain without a balanced plan to address these Specialty Care issues with the same seriousness and will that has been appropriately applied by government to Primary Care. Please continue to provide your individual feedback to Doctors of BC directly via [email protected] and copy us at [email protected].
Please send your patient care and physician stories to [email protected]
