NORTH SAANICH — Mayor Alice Finall has been appointed the District of North Saanich’s liaison to the doctor recruitment and retention committee being formed on the Saanich Peninsula.
Local doctors and the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation have teamed up to try to address the issue of retiring doctors and a marked lack of available replacements.
“It’s a going concern,” Finall said.
Councillors in the District noted that more doctors are being lost to the community and are concerned with a lack of action so far by provincial authorities to address the matter of retiring physicians in a region that is dependant upon its doctors.
