A new website aims to link people in the Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Chilcotin area to health services.
“So far there are 130 services in the data base,” said Trevor Barnes, executive director with the Central Interior Rural Division of Family Practice, before the soft launch of the website Wednesday morning.
During Tuesday’s regular city council meeting, Coun. Laurie Walters, who is working part-time for GP For Me in the region, said the website www.cariboochilcotin.fetchbc.ca will be a directory at people’s fingers tips.
“It will be a tool for our physicians to find out what is available in our community,” Walters said. “It’s fantastic.”
Walters said FETCH is an acronym meaning For Everything That’s Community Health.
Several regions in the province have similar websites up and running, Walters added.
While the soft launch of the website was Wednesday, Barnes said more will probably be added in the future, but they wanted to get it up and running to see how it works.
