Dear Colleagues,


We want YOUR feedback around major changes coming to the way healthcare is delivered in BC


Earlier this year, as part of the province’s “Innovation Change Agenda”, the BC Ministry of Health released a number of health policy papers that set out the broad strategy and future direction of our healthcare system. These papers cover a number of areas including primary care, surgical services, rural health services, health human resources, and information technology.


The Ministry of Health recognizes that resident doctors are the future of health care in BC, and is therefore keen on gathering resident feedback around these new policies.


In order to ensure that the resident voice is incorporated into the future direction of health policy in this province, Resident Doctors of BC will be sending out a survey to all residents in early December. When the survey is released we ask for your support in encouraging residents to provide their varied perspectives.


The second method is through focus groups. We have already held two (Prince George and Vancouver) and we now need your participation and the participation of your colleagues. The final focus group will be in Victoria:


January 7, 2015 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm at RJH Coronation Annex 219


We will be spending some time discussing the proposed health policies and asking for your feedback on the following policy papers:

Primary and Community Care

Rural Health Services

Health Human Resources

All the policy papers and executive summaries are available on the Ministry of Health website here. You are also welcome to read the Doctors of BC response to these position papers here.


We look forward to discussing these very important issues with you and your colleagues; if you are able to attend please rsvp to the office dinner is provided.
