Cape Breton Doctors Voice Fears over Physicians Leaving Island

Doctors in Cape Breton held a press conference on Friday to bring attention to the exodus of skilled physicians and medical specialists leaving the island. The public warning came after news on Friday that seven more doctors will be leaving Cape Breton by the end of June. The group of seven doctors holding the press conference were critical of the provincial health authority’s ability to stop the bleeding and recruit specialists to work in Cape Breton.
