Helpful Information for those Without a Doctor:

If you find yourself or someone you know without a family Doctor, here is some helpful information:


Firstly, Cranbrook is going to be setting up an Urgent and Primary Care Centre. For more information see: https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2021HLTH0141-001539


Secondly, we have a Cranbrook Virtual Clinic to see a Doctor. For more information about this please see: https://divisionsbc.ca/group/14/content/44549


Thirdly, seeing a Doctor via video-conferencing is a real and easy option. There are two apps that I have used and they are great and are free. Yes, you can sit in your living room and video chat with a Doctor!


Here are some of the apps to download: (also look in your app store)
