The full interview with bonus material:

Port Hope Council is spearheading an effort to create a walk-in clinic. It announced the plans last fall. The clinic was supposed to open before the end of 2023, but several challenges arose. It is still not open, but officials say the goal is sometime in July.

Mayor Olena Hankivsky is a key figure in the walk-in clinic’s development. She will provide an update on the project. She will shine a light on some of the unexpected hurdles. These will include things like technical issues with software and securing Northumberland County Council’s support. All have been instrumental in the clinic’s progress.

The clinic is meant to serve those who do not have a family doctor. But it is more complicated. You will want to listen carefully to the interview to fully understand who can use the services and some potential problems that occur if you use it but already have a family physician.
