ER hours reduced again this week – correction

Town's only doctor the only one able to order tests, give prescriptions.

Re: ER hours reduced this again this week in the Apr. 30, 2015 issue of The Journal.

Ashcroft Mayor Jack Jeyes is quoted in the article as saying: “that patients would be able to get tests and test results and prescriptions from the locums.” Although he did say these words, he admitted later after The Journal had been printed that he was mistaken and that the only patients who would be able to get tests, test results and prescriptions would be patients of Dr. Govindasamy.
