IH helping find small town doctors

by - Story: 37938


Interior Health's CEO says the health authority is working with local officials to address a coming doctor-gap in the small town of Clearwater.

Murray Ramsden says IH has already managed to recruit a couple of physicians for the similarly small town of Princeton, which was facing a total lack of doctors at the end of this month.

Ramsden says if it turns out two resignations do leave Clearwater completely doctor-less at the end of June, the health authority would make sure local patients get rides to Kamloops for medical care.

He says they have a backup plan for these kinds of situations, which involves the B.C. Ambulance Service.

Ramsden says it makes practical sense for Clearwater to be offering bonuses and perks to doctors, in attempts to get them to settle there.
