Locating Family Physician/Adult Specialist: Resources for Community Pediatricians & Other Physicians
The various Divisions of Family Practice GP4Me project included the development of “attachment mechanisms”, essentially ways and means to locate a family physician for those patients who do not have one. The Divisions do not maintain a “roster” of GPs, because that roster could change daily. However, many of the Divisions have established a process that could be helpful to pediatricians and their transitioning patients.
Pathways is an online tool used by specialists and family physicians, which is available in close to 100% of the Divisions of Family Practice. You can use it to find a family physician in the Divisions that list family physicians in Pathways. Using a secure, password-protected website, you can also quickly access current and accurate community service and referral information, including wait times and areas of practice for specialists, clinics and health services across British Columbia.

The BC Pediatric Society will update this resource on a regular basis.
