A physician recruitment strategy has been announced that hopes to help improve the supply of physicians in the province.


Leefa Sproxton with the Heartland Health Region explained that about five physician positions are available in the region at a time.

Sproxton added that there have been about four to five new doctors come into the region since the fall but with every new one that arrives, there is always one that leaves.

A new strategy to help recruit and keep physicians in the province involves using websites such as Facebook and YouTube.
