A GP for Me
(or the Attachment Initiative)
www.gpscbc.ca
A GP for Me: Background
• Number of unattached patients in BC uncertain
• Using Canadian Community Health Survey data, it
is estimated:
– 13.8% of British Columbians (~615,000 people) have no
regular family physician; and
– 3.96% (~176,000) are looking for a family physician, but
cannot find one.
www.gpscbc.ca
A GP for Me: Background
• Hollander's BC data indicates better outcomes at
lower costs for patients attached to a FP
• Care through walk-in clinics or Emergency
Departments
– fragmented & expensive
– poorer outcomes
• Lack of access = health inequities
• 2010 Government commitment to provide a family
physician for any BC resident who wants one, by
2015
www.gpscbc.ca
A GP for Me: Goals
• Confirm and strengthen the FP-patient continuous
relationship
• Better support the needs of vulnerable patients
• Enable patients that want a family doctor to find one
• Increase the capacity of the primary health care system
www.gpscbc.ca
A GP for Me: Consultation
• Nearly 400 FPs involved in creation of initiative:
– as members of the GPSC shaping the high-level framework;
– as members of both BCMA and SGP boards of directors, reviewing and
approving the GPSC’s work ;
– as members of the provincial attachment working group from the prototype
communities;
– Approx. 300 physicians tested and implemented the prototype plans across
three communities;
– through workshops to define patient attachment and outline the responsibilities
of both physicians and patients in this relationship; and
– through addressing elements of attachment through CSCs:
•
•
collecting and analyzing data to better understand unattached patient numbers and priority areas
for improving the health of vulnerable populations.
Co-designing community supports with Health Authority Partners
www.gpscbc.ca
A GP for Me: Prototype Results
• Two-year prototype – White Rock/South
Surrey, Prince George, Cowichan Valley
– Approx. 9,400 unattached patients connected to
FPs or primary care clinics
– Many complex patients being served in primary
care clinics and/or through Division of Family
Practice / Health Authority collaborative initiatives
– Currently, patients can find a FP immediately in
White Rock/South Surrey.
