Elk Point still working on getting doctor

Elk Point council says they know that getting another doctor to the community is still a hot button topic. Residents have sent letters to both Alberta Health Services as well as Provincial government officials expressing concern for the need of a physician in the community.

Council let the public know last week that a doctor from South Africa has been interviewed and is interested in heading to Elk Point.
