Dr. Grant Del Begio has practiced in the Kamloops area for 30 years. He speaks with CFJC Today about the new pay model for BC family physicians that was launched last year.
He says the payment change has eased some of the pressure on family health care, but it will be years before the family doctors situation is stabilized.
“This basically staunched the bleeding that had happened over two decades, really. And it’s stopped that,” notes Del Begio. “But to turn the corner and to really build this up, it is going to take time, but I think we’re certainly moving in the right direction.”
