Now is the time to take further action in promoting the value of family medicine to government and media.
Write to your MLA – it takes less than two minutes
Our new tool allows family physicians to send a letter to your MLA in just a few clicks.
Simply enter your name, email and postal code to let your MLA know about the value of family medicine, your experience as a family physician, and the difficulty British Columbians have in accessing a family physician.
Submitting the letter takes less than two minutes. We created a letter that you can easily modify if you wish. Follow this link to make your voice heard!
