We do not have permanent specialty care on Haida Gwaii. However, we have doctors and other health practitioners from several specialties who visit the clinic on a regular basis or are available via video link. They offer residents timely access to medical expertise while also saving them a trip off island.
These specialists are intimately familiar with the challenges of our geography and travel difficulties and are therefore most often the best choice for a specialist opinion. If needed, they frequently facilitate investigations and advanced care off island, in cooperation with our clinic.
In order to access specialty care, please contact your family doctor’s office via one of the Health Centres.
