Since our Community meeting May 24, the working group has been working very hard to find solutions to maintain the existing level of medical services on Quadra after Dr Boegel leaves in November 2018.
Dr Boegel has had some serious inquiries from a few physicians interested in part time salaried positions and will meet with these over the next few weeks.
Many thanks to residents who wrote asking the Ministry of Health and Island Health to assist us with options. There are definite signs that you are being heard. While there are no definite decisions available as yet, encouraging discussions with Island Health have started and several options are being considered.
It is clear that evidence of community support for maintaining existing and improved services is crucial to finding a solution, so it is important that people keep writing letters to Ministry and Island Health.
