This work offers an exciting opportunity to support local networks of family physicians to start working together to support each other personally and professionally, and to provide a strong foundation for Primary Care Networks as they are introduced across the city.

Why is work happening around primary care change? What is a PMH and PCN? Why is team-based care important? How does this work include or relate to me?
We are receiving many questions in regards to physician vaccinations and community roll-out, and are working to provide answers as soon as we know, please continue to reference our Member Q&A page.
This is a first step for members in the development of PMHs/PCNs. At present, the GPSC has allocated $6,000/ physician for this process.
We encourage all members to get involved in your local Primary Care Network. Contact us to learn about engagement opportunities in your PCN.
