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.
