P.E.I. patients can still see their doctor, even though he’s moved to Ireland
CBC Prince Edward Island/ - In September 2019, Tignish’s only local physician, with a roster of 2,500 patients accumulated over the past 5.5 years, made the decision to retire and return back home to Ireland. With physician shortages plaguing PEI already, the community was worried that coverage and recruitment would be a concern. After a collaborative effort between Maple and Health PEI, Maple virtualized Dr. Declan Fox’s clinic, allowing him to continue to see his patients virtually. This project makes Tignish Health Centre one of the first healthcare centres in the world to provide virtual primary care to patients across borders.
