TAYLOR, B.C. – District of Taylor Mayor Rob Fraser and Council were able to release more details on Monday night surrounding the District of Taylor Medical Clinic agreement with the North Peace Primary Care Clinic that will start in September.
“We’ve been working with the Ministry of Health, we’ve been working with Northern Health, we’ve been working with the North Peace Division of Family Practice and ultimately we were able to get working with the North Peace Primary Care Clinic.”
At the meeting at Monday, Dr. Abimbola Olajide, Dr. Bayo Oyedeji and Dr. Oname Diakparomore were all present to introduce themselves to the Taylor community.
Fraser says the agreement is for one-year. The doctors will be supplied by the North Peace Primary Care Clinic for 4 half days to start. Fraser says that if the need arises that hours need to be extended, they will visit that when the situation presents itself.
Fraser added that current Health Minister, Adrian Dix, is aware of the deal reached for the Taylor Medical Clinic. He adds that he is hopeful that the Minister will come up for a visit, if and when it is possible.
“Hopefully we’ll get an opportunity to get the Minister up to view that clinic and have a look at how small town rural B.C. deals with their medical problems.”
The doctors will start on September 5th in Taylor.
