Presentation and discussion at 7pm.
Doctor Shortage Meeting (6:00)The Division of Family Practice will be hosting a Public Information Meeting regarding our doctor shortage in Oceanside and how that shortage can have an adverse impact on our Oceanside community.
Dr Mark Morris who has his practice in Parksville, will make an overhead presentation and will participate in any followup discussion.
Our doctor shortage is not unique. Doctors are in short supply not only in Oceanside but also on Vancouver Island, throughout BC and Canada as well. The question could be asked that if every one is in the same boat, how on earth do we successfully recruit doctors to our Oceanside community?
We know there are about 4500 people in Oceanside without a doctor - almost 10% of our Oceanside population. There is a solution but only if the community is willing to think outside the box and be creative. It is important that folks attend this presentation.
This is an important issue that will have an effect on most everyone in Oceanside.
The meeting will be held on Monday, May 9 at the Qualicum Beach Civic Center in the Lion's Room, starting at 6:00 pm.
