Terrace residents trying to get in to see their family doctor over the next few months may have a little more difficulty than usual.
Northern Health confirms that another physician is leaving the community at the end of March.
Northwest Medical Director Dr. Geoff Appleton says things will be a bit hectic between now and the summer, when more physicians arrive.
Appleton says a fourth doctor is expected to set up shop in Terrace towards the end of the year.
He says there is competition for physicians right across B.C., but says they are very actively recruiting for the Northwest.
