Wellington physician vacancy now filled

(l-r) MLA Sonny Gallant, Health and Wellness Minister James Aylward and Wellington Mayor Alcide Bernard.

Government has secured an Island physician to provide medical services in the community of Wellington.

The physician, who is currently practicing in PEI, will provide medical services to the community one day a week in the Wellington Health Centre. This replaces the half-day a week service provided by the previous physician in the area. 

“When we first heard that the former physician was leaving and that a space was no longer available, we immediately began looking for a new space and physicians who could fill the role. It was a pleasure to meet with the Mayor of Wellington and MLA Sonny Gallant this afternoon to let them know that the vacant position has now been filled. We are also fortunate that the physician is bilingual and will be providing services in both English and French to residents.” 

- Health and Wellness Minister James Aylward

As the space requires renovations, it is anticipated that the physician will begin practicing in Wellington in April 2020.
