Clinic Concerns Update:
In the Pilot of Aug. 24, we raised some very serious concerns about health care delivery in Lewisporte and area. For those not familiar with last week’s letter I reiterate THREE concerns: firstly, the present facility is not adequate for the delivery of service; secondly, Lewisporte and area needs a new modern facility and what better place to have it than in the new health care facility being presently constructed (keeping in mind we have a fall election coming); and, thirdly, the constant change of doctors is NOT conducive to healthy doctor-patient relationships.
Last week’s letter to the Pilot has had nothing but positive feedback, however, agreement without action is not enough. We need you to express your opinions and as we go down the road, we are going to need your help and public support. If you wish to help us, please call and give us your name and number.
As a follow-up to the letter submitted to the Pilot last week, several people through misunderstanding, bad timing, and other circumstances, did not get the opportunity to add their names to our group. They are Arthur Sparkes, Campbellton and George and Pauline Winter, Lewisporte. We thank them for their support.
Walter Dawe, on behalf of the Concerned Group
