Finding a Primary Care Provider in the Comox Valley
Residents of the Comox Valley, including Denman and Hornby Islands, have several ways of finding a family doctor or nurse practitioner:
- Visit the Pathways Medical Care Directory for a list of family doctors accepting new patients; they can be found using the “Find Care” search bar.
- Register with the Health Connect Registry – a provincial primary care waitlist – you will be contacted when a family doctor or nurse practitioner is available.
In the meantime, if you need to see a doctor, please go to one of the walk-in clinics listed on Pathways Medical Care Directory; listed under “Find Care”. There are two clinics in the area who offer walk-in services and an After-Hours Urgent Care Clinic for urgent primary care needs. The First Nations Doctor of the Day program is another option for Indigenous members of our community.
Pathways is provided through the Family Practitioner Services Committee (FPSC), a joint collaboration between Doctors of BC and the BC government. Individual Divisions of Family Practice also contribute operational funding at a local level.
