P.E.I.'s health department is looking for someone to fill in temporarily at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital's emergency room as one of its doctors gets ready to go on paternity leave.
A spokeswoman for the Health Department said the recruitment and retention office is in discussions with someone to fill the position and is waiting to hear back from him about his available start date.
The hospital is looking for coverage from January until the end of March.
Initially the QEH was looking for someone to fill the position from November to January, but Health P.E.I. was able to get the necessary physician coverage internally.
