Core Group of Physicians

Getting to the Core of Access to Health Care with a Core Group of Physicians

General Practice physicians are a very important part of the care team at the Veterans Memorial Lodge. In recent years, however, fewer physicians have been available to provide medical care to residents admitted to Victoria residential care facilities. 

To ensure that all residents have access to quality medical care, we work with a group of 10 to 12 physicians who have been willing to increase the number of patients they care for at the Lodge.  We call this group our Core Group of Physicians. Collectively they now provide medical care to more than 80% of the residents at the Lodge.
