Wim­mera Health Care Group hopes two new doc­tors start­ing at Hor­sham’s Read Street Med­i­cal Clinic in Jan­uary will ease the bur­den on peo­ple try­ing to get ap­point­ments to see doc­tors.

Wim­mera Med­i­cal Cen­tre man­ager Heather Parker said since the health group had taken over the clinic it had ap­pointed a locum doc­tor, Dr Rais Siddiqi, to help meet de­mand.

She said Dr Siddiqi would be avail­able un­til Jan­uary 13 be­fore the new male and fe­male doc­tors started on Jan­uary 15. “Dr Iain Loan and Dr He­len Loan will be work­ing from the Read Street Med­i­cal Clinic for 12 months,” she said.

“We hope this will as­sist in re­duc­ing the de­lays peo­ple have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing when try­ing to get in to see a doc­tor.”

Mrs Parker said peo­ple keen to make an ap­point­ment with the locum doc­tor, or with the new doc­tors start­ing on Jan­uary 15, could call 5381 9090.
