A Family Practice Network, or FPN, provides a mechanism through which a physician group can address common practice and patient needs, have a collective voice on issues facing family practice, and address local population health needs, in coordination with the Regional Health Authority (RHA). The FPN structure is a physician-led, non-profit organization.
The RE-Boot FPN was incorporated on October 23, 2019 and chose a name that represents the expansive geographic area it represents: “RE” representing the “Rural Eastern” portion of the province, “Boot” representing the Burin Peninsula, and “RE-Boot” to signify the beginning of improvements and change in family physician practice.
A community of rural family physicians in Eastern NL, working together to improve the lives of our physician members and enhance quality of care for our patients.
Working collaboratively to achieve excellence in rural primary care, for healthy, fulfilled communities of patients, physicians, and health care teams.
