Urgent and primary care centre coming to Esquimalt

People living in Esquimalt and neighbouring communities will soon have better access to team-based everyday health care with planning for an urgent and primary care centre (UPCC) underway in the municipality.

“As part of our primary care strategy, we’re moving forward with a new urgent and primary care centre in Esquimalt to help connect more people with the team-based and comprehensive health care they need, when they need it,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. “Thousands of area residents who currently lack a primary care provider will benefit from increased access to same-day appointments for urgent needs and ongoing primary care.”

The urgent and primary care centre, operated by Island Health, will open in a temporary space in late spring 2021. Once opened, the centre will provide extended hours of care with primary care providers supporting both attachment and access to services. Read More at BC Government News.
