The Health Connect Registry is a region-wide patient registry for people who are looking for a family doctor or nurse practitioner. Surrey-North Delta includes the following Primary Care Network (PCN) neighbourhoods:
- North Delta-West Newton
- North Surrey-Whalley
- East Newton
To find out which neighbourhood you are located within, visit the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice PCN Map.
If you live in B.C. and need a primary care provider, you can register for the Health Connect Registry. You can also register your family members or a person in your care.
To register, you’ll need to provide your Personal Health Number, B.C. home address and contact information. Once registered, you will be contacted directly when a family doctor or nurse practitioner is available.
The Health Connect Registry is the most efficient way to find a family doctor or nurse practitioner in this region. It replaces the Surrey-North Delta Division of Family Practice patient portal waitlist. We ask you to please be patient, as it may take some time to be connected with a doctor or nurse practitioner.
Please note: If you previously registered with the Surrey-North Delta (SND) Division of Family Practice waitlist, and agreed to have your registration transferred to the Health Connect Registry:
- your name is on our list
- you will not lose your place in line
- you will be contacted to confirm or update your registration information

Vision for PCNs in Surrey-North Delta
About Primary Care Networks and the Health Connect Registry
PCNs are community-based networks of health care professionals and clinics who plan and deliver all day-to-day health care needs of a community. Within these networks, teams of providers work together. This way, patients receive better care, by the right person, at the right time, closer to home.
PCNs are part of the Province's Primary and Community Care Strategy to make sure you have faster and better access to the everyday health care services.
The Health Connect Registry is part of this strategy. The Registry works with communities to help match patients with a regular family doctor or nurse practitioner. We know that having a regular provider leads to better health for you and your family.
