The number of Kamloops residents looking for a doctor has dropped again.

He says there is now a waiting list of of more than 2,400 people looking for primary care.
“We opened a clinic, its a one year anniversary just happened last week, and we have got just over 6,400 people now attached. It was a first within in the province. It was all nurse practioners.”
Two family doctors have also since joined the the clinic.
