PCN 6 runs south of 41st Ave., and west along the Fraser River from Boundary Road to Granville. Click here for a map of PCN 6.
The Southeast UPCC opened in the Victoria-Fraserview neighborhood in March of this year. The UPCC serves two purposes. One is to provide care for people with non-life-threatening conditions who need to see a health-care provider within 12 to 24 hours, but do not require an emergency department. This would include patients with issues such as sprains, cuts, high fevers and minor infections. Care is available from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Sundays and holidays.
The second purpose of the UPCC is to help attach patients to a regular primary care provider. To facilitate this the centre, once it is fully staffed, will attach patients to healthcare providers and will provide ongoing wrap-around care for unattached patients on an interim basis while they arrange for patients to be connected to other local practices for care. The team will begin providing long-term primary care services for adults with medically complex needs, seniors and underserved and vulnerable populations.
Primary Care Network resources include interdisciplinary providers that will support Team Based Care and access to quality, comprehensive primary care for patients. PCNs are built on a strong foundation of Patient Medical Homes (PMHs), clinics that operate at an ideal level to provide longitudinal person-centred care.
The purpose of the PCN Steering Committee is to ensure that the local community has a voice in shaping primary health care in their community. The Committee supports the implementation of the approved Service Plan for their community. Check out our year 1 discussions here.
