BC Health Coalition Applauds the new Team Based Primary Health Care Strategy
May 24, 2018
Team-based strategy will ensure faster and more appropriate care
Vancouver, BC – Unceded Coast Salish Territories – The BC government announced today a major investment in the new primary health care strategy to improve access for British Columbians. Team-based care is central to the new primary health care strategy. This announcement indicates a change of approach and a system-wide transformation of primary care.
“Primary health care is not one size fits all. People need to be able to access the type of health care worker that can best address their needs–this might be a physiotherapist, a social worker, a pharmacist, or a doctor,” says Edith MacHattie, BC Health Coalition co-chair. “Providing team-based care will better meet the needs of British Columbians.”
