As of the website launch on June 27, 2012, there are 119 Edmonton area PCN family physicians accepting new patients.
The user friendly website, http://www.edmontonareadocs.ca/, will be updated quarterly. PCN doctors can be searched by the Edmonton and area map, gender, location and language.
"PCNs have multidisciplinary teams who work collaboratively with family physicians to provide patient care within their own networks. This project has brought all nine Edmonton area PCNs together to work collaboratively to provide the public with an easy to use tool that will help them locate a family physician,” explained Doug Craig, General Manager of Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network.
