Welcome to the Patient Attachment Mechanism (PAM) waitlist.
This service will assist you in finding a primary health care provider in Parksville, French Creek, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, Arrowsmith Coombs Country, or Lighthouse Country areas of Vancouver Island, B.C.

Please note:
  • Register each family member separately. You will be able to add additional members at the end of the survey if needed.
  • If you are completing this registration on behalf of someone else, please answer all questions with their information.
  • If you have technical difficulties with the online application, please email our administrator at

In order to use this program you must:

  • Be a resident in the Parksville, French Creek, Qualicum Beach, Nanoose Bay, Arrowsmith Coombs Country, or Lighthouse Country local Health Areas
  • Not already be attached to any Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner in your community
  • Have active or pending MSP coverage (If you do not know the answer to this, please call Medical Services Plan at 1-800-663-7100)
The personal information you provide to our program will be used for the purpose of finding you a Family Doctor or Nurse Practitioner and in compliance with the BC Personal Information Protection Act, which is subject to the independent oversight of the British Columbia Information and Privacy Commissioner.

You may also be contacted by an evaluator to ask about your experience and satisfaction with the process.

Please note: 

We will try our best to match you with a family doctor or nurse practitioner; however, please note that there is extremely limited capacity in the Oceanside area, and you will be placed on a waitlist until a primary care provider is available.
