The O’Leary Health Centre walk-in clinic will operate on a limited schedule again in September.

Health officials balme a shortage of physicians.

The O’Leary walk-in clinic hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and holidays

It will be open the following days: Sept. 3-7, 10-12, 14 (noon to 8 p.m.), 15, 17, 18 (noon to 8 p.m.), 25, and 27-28.

Priority is given to filling physician shifts at the Western Hospital emergency department in Alberton, which often reduces the number of physicians who are able to staff the walk-in clinic.

For alternate walk-in clinic service, the O’Leary Guardian

Drugs offers a clinic from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 12:30 to 4 p.m. on weekends and holidays, but please call first at (902) 726-3006 to confirm operating hours.

    I won't be voting in the next Election unless they enact Recall Legislation. To elect a Party for a four year term is a long time especially if the constituents (Islanders) have no recourse available.

    some one asked where is Robbi Henderson? Well, he is counting his lucky star and his money, and working on a way that his offsprings can continue the dynasty gravy train. And in his spare time he trying to figure out hos he can hide the mismagement of the department he enherited from the taxpayers. So that is where he is. Busy,busy hiding the troubling tourism figures, - and of course towing the Ghiz line, after all who would want to give up the good life for principles or anything like that?

    CRIPES, what do you want up there in Prince COUNTY, DID Rom McKinley not just give you $320.000 for a race track so his comrade in politics could enjoy his horsy hobby in Alberton. McKinley said it was for tourist and 'that', -- sure there will come "thousands from Tyne Valley alone ". So with that ;priority, where should they find money to keep your health services up to par? If I remember right Gyptill trucking hundreds from Prince county into the convention that elected 'the silver spoon boy' as leader of the Liberal Party, ---- and Islander have suffered ever since and will for generations to come, as they pay off the debt for this 'boy's' foolishness and that of the people that elected him. Unfortunately we all have to sleep in the bed YOU made.

    Where is Robbie Henderson and why isn't he doing or saying anything about this? How come he chooses to tow the party line instead of doing what is right for the people that voted for him? There is lots of taxpayers money to waste on a new office building for MLA's offices and to throw at Tim Banks to pay for renovations he wants to do to a building he bought....but how come there is no money when it comes to providing care to citizens of O'Leary and surrounding areas? How come the well runs dry when the PEOPLE need something, but there is all kinds of money to pass around in patronage items. Robbie...stand up and show you have a backbone...fight for whats right for the people of O'Leary and make Ghiz see that we do need some services in rural West Prince. The whole world doesn't revolve around Brighton and Charlottetown....there are people that still live in the Eastern and Western tips of PEI...and yes...they pay more than their share of taxes too.

    Our government tells you that they care but in reality they do not. They would sooner waste money on their buddies than take care of the suffering public they are meant to serve. I am calling on all voters to only vote for independent candidates. In the last 30 years I have seen both Liberals and Conservatives screw things up equally. Both parties are essentially the same. Why is our standard of living dropping so much? It's because our government is failing to do what they are supposed to do ... govern the people with compassion and accountability through a transparent process. They say they are "just one of us" but as soon as they get in office they become kings and queens. IT IS TIME FOR MAJOR CHANGE.
