About the Society

Shoreline Medical clinics are owned and operated by a charitable non-profit called Shoreline Medical Society. Our vision is to be a leading primary care network for the Saanich Peninsula, integrating multiple disciplines working together to provide accessible community health care.

About the clinics

Common questions about Shoreline

In short – you, the community. We are owned and operated by a charitable organization called the Shoreline Medical Society. The priority of the society is to implement the full vision of a network of primary health clinics. See our society page for more information.

If you are assigned to one of our team of family physicians, he/she will be your Most Responsible Provider (MRP) for health care needs. However, you will not necessarily see your MRP on every visit to the clinic. The good news is that your health care will not have to match with your physician’s availability, thereby increasing your access to care when you need it. Our team of doctors is connected through Electronic Medical Records accessed in every patient room, and your charts are maintained with the assistance of our team of professionals.

To promote continuity of care our family physicians actively support the Saanich Peninsula Hospital. The good news is, if you are at any time admitted to the local hospital, you will be seen by a member of the team. It also means that your physician is on a rotation to be away from the clinic one in seven weeks. During your family doctor’s hospital rotation, he/she will be covered by the other team doctors and/or a locum.

We are working very hard to develop a network of medical clinics, to recruit new doctors, so that we can help you find a doctor.  If you live on the Saanich Peninsula in our catchment area and do not currently have a family doctor, please check to see if we are open for New Patient Intake. Until then, the best option is for you to consistently use the Walk In Clinic for your health care needs. Although you won’t have an MRP (Most Responsible Physician), you will have the benefit of your medical chart, lab work, and past visits being available to the physician you see through our Electronic Medical Record system.
