Transition/Transfer of Patients to Adult Care
Locating a Family Physician or Adult Specialist for a Transferring Patient

As many of you are likely aware, the various Divisions of Family Practice have been working on the GP4Me project, and part of that work has included developing “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.

In addition to the "attachment mechanism" work described above, Pathways could also provide some good information. As you may know, Pathways is now run out of the Divisions, and some Divisions have family physicians listed in Pathways along with their practice interest, wait times, and other pertinent information.  Access to Pathways requires the pediatrician to register his/her own practice – for more information on this, please go to: https://www.divisionsbc.ca/provincial/home.
