Carolyn Plummer says getting physicians to our county isn’t a problem, the challenge is keeping them.

The Haliburton Highlands Health Services President and C.E.O. make the comment at their annual general meeting last week.

Plummer says doctors will work shifts in Haliburton and places like Lindsay as well.

Plummer also says once the physicians are here, H.H.H.S has an opportunity to meet with them and convince them to become permanent residents.

Plummer didn’t give an exact number of how many doctors they need at this time.

Plummer adds physician recruitment is a joint effort between H.H.H.S. and the Family Health Team.

The Family Health Team runs the walk-in clinic, which opens on July 3rd at the Family Health Centre near the hospital.
