Locum Position available for General Pediatrician at Surrey/Langley
I have had to take an unexpected medical leave of absence from my practice in Surrey/Langley and I was wondering if you were aware of anyone looking for a locum position at the moment. Or, alternatively, if you had the opportunity to circulate this message to the general paediatricians at BCCH, I would be very grateful.
