Patients searching for family doctor at new Langford Urgent Primary Care Centre leave disappointed


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.

Wilson said she was hoping to find a family doctor for her three-year-old grandson as well as herself.

“I had a brain tumour taken out a year ago June, and I’m getting older. I need care,” she said.

When it was announced early last week, the province said the new urgent primary care facility in Langford would better connect locals with health care providers.
