We need and deserve a family physician in our community . We as a community are not only dealing with physical health issues but also mental health issues due to the horrific incident in April which rocked our small community.
I’m signing because I had hoped to relocate back to my home province, but with the lack of medical available, This is not an option for me. Additionally, everyone needs proper and adequate medical care.
Everyone in Nova Scotia and across Canada need access to a family doctor. We loose a lot of our new graduates and seasoned physicians to other countries, and we need to find ways to retain one of our most valuable resources - our doctors!
We currently have excellent doctors in Bass River. When they retire soon we will have no doctors. Our only options will be walk-in clinics or the emergency room in Truro. I don’t feel that either of these options come close to the care provided by a doctor in the community who knows their patients and their histories.
