Quesnel is making a big push to attract doctors.
The city is working with various levels of government and Northern Health to discuss what’s the best way to recruit doctors.
They came up with several strategy points which include developing a new local primary care clinic for unattached patients to be developed by the summer, support for the family and spouse of doctors, working together with different government stakeholders, and creating a communication strategy to engage the community.
The plan will integrate local ideas that will show off the best of Quesnel when potential doctors visit the city.
These include highlighting the work and lifestyle available to residents, with videos of Quesnel physicians that will be located on the Northern Health physician recruitment website.
Northern Health’s physician recruitment team will also be attending seven recruitment events nationally and internationally to showcase the opportunities to physicians seeking a change of location, keeping close contact with potential recruits, and working closely with Health Match B.C.
