The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) works on behalf of specialist physicians and is focused on the following three areas:
1. DEVELOP PHYSICIAN CAPABILITY: Helping specialist physicians develop leadership and quality improvement skills to effectively lead and champion change.
2. ENGAGE PHYSICIANS & PARTNERS: Strengthening relationships between physicians, health authorities and partners, so that collaboratively we can address health system challenges and support quality patient care.
3. TRANSFORM CARE DELIVERY: Improving key patient care and health system priorities as delivered by specialist physicians.

Our Structure and Funding
The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) is one of four joint collaborative committees that represent a partnership of the Government of BC and Doctors of BC, and includes regular representation from health authorities. SSC formed in 2006 under the Physician Master Agreement to help Doctors of BC, BC government and health authorities collaborate on the delivery of specialist services and support improvement of the specialist care system in BC.
