On the hunt for doc­tors

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

TIGNISH – Mayor Al­lan McIn­nis says he’s re­ally hop­ing two doc­tors, to whom he re­cently pro­vided a tour of Tignish and area, will choose to open a prac­tice in the West Prince town. McIn­nis said the Ir­ish doc­tors seemed im­pressed with what they saw, and he added, “I think they would fit in re­ally well.”

A mem­ber of a newly formed com­mit­tee that’s seek­ing to re­cruit and re­tain doc­tors in West Prince, McIn­nis said he’s made it clear to the com­mit­tee that his fo­cus is on find­ing a re­place­ment for Dr. De­clan Fox who is due to re­tire from his prac­tice in Tignish next year.

A tour of the health cen­tre where Fox is based was part of the doc­tors’ visit to Tignish. They vis­ited other lo­cal land­marks, too, like Tignish Fish­eries, the Stompin’ Tom Cen­tre and the Tignish Se­niors Home Co-op­er­a­tive.
