If you have not already done so and are an “orphan” patient or without a family physician, it is important to register immediately so that the government is aware of how many people are lacking a doctor. This is the single most effective way to alert the “powers that be” to our local critical situation. Go online at gamf.gouv.qc.ca and click on “Register to the waiting list”.  See page 4 in Tempo’s May edition. Alternatively, you may phone La Pommeraie Social Services Centre at: 450-4342 ext. 35695.
