More health care woes for residents in West Prince.

Health P.E.I. has announced the O’Leary Health Centre walk-in clinic will be closed for the remainder of today, Jan. 8, after the physician scheduled to provide coverage at the clinic became ill.

Ambulatory services will continue as scheduled.

In non-urgent situations, Islanders are encouraged to visit their family physician’s office or a walk-in clinic.

However, anyone with urgent medical needs should call 9-1-1 or seek immediate

medical care at the nearest hospital emergency department, such as

Western Hospital in Alberton or Prince County Hospital in Summerside.

Now earlier this month, Health P.E.I. announced that emergency services were being disrupted for nearly half the month of January at Western Hospital in Alberton because of a physician shortage.

Western Hospital’s emergency department will be closed overnight for 11 nights in total.

The emergency department will operate from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. (closed overnight) on the following days: Jan. 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 16, 18, 19, 24, 26 and 29.

Now on Jan. 13 the emergency department at Western Hospital will be shutdown for a full 24-hour period from 8 a.m. until 8 a.m. the next morning.

    Just more of the same from our broken promises government!! I just hope everybody remembers all these lost services and broken promises when the next election comes around and vote for any other party to get the Liberals out of power!! The Liberal party has been involved in so many scandals and told so many lies over the past 20 years that the party has absolutely 0 credibility. There is no reason to ever vote Liberal again!!

    Perhaps we should just pick up the phone and thank Mr. Vessey. This time next year over 30 million dollars will have been spent making our trip to Charlottetown 5 - 7 minutes faster - if you don't stop for gas, a coffee or a school bus. With time savings like that, I have no idea why all the mushy "safety statistics" were needed. All we can say up West is, now that's a government with its priorities in order!
