Dear colleague, 

In light of the worrisome and precedent-setting amendments to physician licensure (Section 2-24 and Schedule A) proposed by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC and BC Ministry of Health, please find an informative response letter attached below. The letter was jointly created by BC physicians to voice our concerns and we urge you to share it with other BC physicians. We have but a very limited window of opportunity to make our concerns known as the April 15 deadine for input is imminent.

We will be submitting the attached letter as feedback to the College and Ministry of Health with the names of all concerned physicians who are willing to have their names included in support of the letter (listed alphabetically). If you would like your name included in the group letter, please submit your name to the form at https://forms.gle/9BA2RBbq7dVVuYuQA by 6pm PST on Tuesday, April 142020. The names will be compiled and the group letter submitted Tuesday evening.

Alternately, if you share these concerns and prefer to submit your feedback individually, we welcome you to use the attached letter - completely or partially. Please note that any feedback to the College and Ministry of Health [Dr. Heidi Oetter (bylaw3@cpsbc.ca) and Mr. Brian Westgate (proregadmin@gov.bc.ca)] must be received by Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

Thank you for helping to uphold the integrity of physician practice in BC and keeping our patients, communities, and families safe.

Sincerely,

Caroline Wang, MD, MPA
