VIRTUAL DOCTOR ACCESS
We are reaching to share important information about the “First Nations Virtual Doctor of the Day” program, a collaboration of the First Nations Health Authority and the Rural Coordination Centre of BC.
As you all know, the COVID-19 situation has meant an interruption to many health services operations, meaning community members may not be able to receive or deliver the primary health care that is needed. The goal of the “First Nations Virtual Doctor of the Day” program is to provide virtual primary health care support to First Nations citizens and communities, as well as health care providers.
This virtual program is easy to use for clients. To book an appointment, clients call: 1 855 344 3800 Open 7 days a week from 8:30pm to 4:30 pm
Please note that this service is not meant to replace a client’s current pathway to their doctor or nurse practitioner. We strongly encourage people who do have an existing relationship with a doctor or nurse practitioner to contact their existing provider first. This practice will help ensure those patients without a health care provider can have better access to the “First Nations Virtual Doctor of the Day” program.
Attached are documents that provide valuable information about this program:
