After taking their concerns to the Saskatchewan Legislature, the town of Preeceville will be seeing new doctors join its community.
Two new medical doctors will begin practicing in Preeceville this month.
But Mayor Garth Harris says both must go through an orientation process before they can start seeing patients.
One doctor starts her orientation Monday, while the other begins orientation next Tuesday.
The community considered the situation so dire it met with various officials including opposition leader Trent Wotherspoon over the summer.
Wotherspoon went as far as to ask Premier Brad Wall to restore medical services to the community.
Rural and remote health minister Greg Ottenbreit says the government has listened to this community’s concerns.
Ottenbreit says conversations with the Sunrise Health Region have led to the doctor shortage being eased.
He says once there are enough doctors to re-open emergency services they will do so.
