Who can access these services?

Anyone using the service(s) will still be patients with their existing primary care provider, while accessing the complimentary services from BCCHC. With the consent of the patient, BCCHC will provide timely and confidential updates to referring providers to keep a clear flow of communication while providing the full range of health care.

Services that are typically paid for will be offered for free to those without extended health benefits when referred by their Family Physician or Nurse Practitioner.
