Patients searching for family doctor at new Langford urgent care centre disappointed

CTV Vancouver Island Published Monday, November 5, 2018 

[Excerpt] There was confusion on opening day of a new urgent primary care facility on the West Shore Monday morning.

More than a dozen people waited in line before the Westshore Urgent Primary Care Centre opened its doors for the first time at 8 a.m.

But some of those people were frustrated to learn that they would not be able to find a new family doctor at the centre – at least for now.

“It’s just purely an urgent care walk-in clinic,” said Wendy Wilson. “I asked if there was a waiting list, no they don’t have a waiting list. I asked if they knew when the prospective pod is going to open for doctors, the answer was no, they don’t know that but it won’t be until the new year for sure.”
