Few options for those without GP

"Pressure has been put on with over 400 people still without a GP today."

With the closing of Selkirk Family Medicine and two doctors leaving Nelson of late, pressure has been put on with over 400 people still without a GP today.

If you require medications today, only a few options.

• Go to Trail Hospital, wait in emergency until someone serves you

• Walk-In clinic, Nelson

• Lastly, if you’re lucky enough to get on a waiting list in Castlegar to see a nurse practitioner.

What happens if you do not have transportation to these out-of-town places?
