Family Practitioner

As part of the new integrated system of primary care across BC, Urgent Primary Care Centres (UPCC) will provide access to primary care for patients currently without a family physician or nurse practitioner and will work to attach those individuals to primary care providers within a Primary Care Network. 

Quesnel is recruiting 2 family practitioners to fill 1.0 FTE to service the new UPCC located at GR Baker Memorial Hospital. Ideally two candidates will each fill 0.50 FTE in the UPCC and will be offered 0.50 FTE doing community practice locums. Candidates interested in 1.0 FTE to work exclusively in the UPCC will also be considered.


Join a multidisciplinary team of social workers, nurse practitioners, and mental health clinicians to address urgent community care needs pertaining to psychiatric services; urgent frail elderly care; complex disease management; and longitudinal/urgent care for the unattached patient population in collaboration with local clinics to attach individuals to a Primary Medical Home. This is a contract opportunity for $251,331 for 1.0 FTE + rural incentives. Candidates interested in 0.50 FTE would receive $125,665.50 + rural incentives.

Community Practice Locums:

Community half-day practice locums will be utilized to integrate and build upon the Primary Care Network as it pertains to Primary Medical Homes. Emergency services are an expectation and will be fully supported with buddy shifts. This will be a FFS opportunity with estimated remuneration to be $80,000 +/- plus rural incentives.

GR Baker Memorial Hospital is a 36 bed acute care facility. Specialty services on-site include internal medicine, ENT, general surgery, psychiatry and a community cancer clinic.

The population of Quesnel is approx.10,000 with another 13,000 residing in the surrounding area. Affordable housing, accessible amenities and short commutes make Quesnel a desirable community to call home. If rewarding professional opportunities and outstanding lifestyle are your priority, we look forward to hearing from you soon.
