Kamloops walk-in clinic closure causes medical care delays

The Kamloops Urgent Care Clinic is closed due to flooding, causing long lineups and delays at the other Kamloops walk-in clinics (Samantha Garvey/CBC).
If you go to the North Shore Treatment Centre right now, you'll likely see a lineup of people hoping to see a doctor.

That's because the Kamloops Urgent Care Centre flooded and is now closed.

Meaning the 80 to 100 patients the centre saw daily need to go elsewhere to be treated.

Dr. Dave Williamson is an Emergency Room physician in Kamloops and is also the President of the Urgent Care Medical Association, which oversees the closed clinic.

For the latest, Shelley reaches Dr. Williamson on the phone.
