A more predictable emergency services schedule for Leader.

The Cypress Health Region annonced the two physicians at Leader Hospital will be working on a two-week on, one-week off rotation starting in July.

Health region officials say this will provide a consistent approach to emergency healthcare, even during the physician shortage.

In the weeks emergency services are unavailable, Leader E-M-S will be working at a state of enhanced readiness.

The health region is also working with SaskTel to install a payphone at the hospital to allow anyone needing urgent medical care to dial 9-1-1 for an ambulance.
